As is common in Colorado, weather conditions Sunday will vary widely depending on your elevation.
While Denver is expected to stay warm and dry, the mountains could receive a few inches of snow as the weekend comes to a close. Winds in the foothills and mountains will become increasingly dangerous throughout Sunday and gusts could reach speeds of 90 mph late Sunday night and early Monday morning, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.
Temperatures in Denver could reach a high of 57 degrees Sunday and are expected to remain in the 50s through Friday as sunshine continues. Average temperatures for this week in January are generally in the mid-40s, according to the weather service.
Winds will blast the foothills around Boulder and across the Front Range Sunday evening and early Monday morning, prompting at least one law enforcement agency to warn travelers. The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office stated that the winds could create hazardous driving conditions, down power lines and cause tree limbs to fall.
The Front Range will also receive some snow Sunday and Monday. The heaviest snow is expected west of the Continental Divide and the mountains around Breckenridge could receive less than half an inch and Vail could receive up to 2 inches.
Mild & dry on the plains today with snow in the mountains. The heaviest snow should be in the Park Range with 5-9" through tonight. Lesser amounts of 1-4" expected elsewhere. Windy Front Range Mountains & Foothills after midnight with gust to 90 mph. #cowx pic.twitter.com/aEd1bRxVxL
