Denver will bask

in balmy weather with temperatures in the high 50s on Thursday and the 60s on Friday as a new storm system bringing colder air with it creeps its way towards Colorado from the north.

Sunny and clear skies with temperatures climbing between 10 to 20 degrees above normal are expected in the Denver metro area through Friday.

Skiers can also expect a warmer-than-normal day Thursday in Colorado's high country — "one of those blue bird days," said Kari Bowen, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Boulder.

"As people go into the mountains today it should be a nice day with light winds," Bowen said.

Skiers can still enjoy a solid base of snow around 45 inches at many ski resorts, according to Bowen.

A cold front will drop down from Wyoming and snow will begin to fall in the mountains on Friday night and in Denver on Saturday, she said.

By Monday, some mountain towns could get up to another foot of snow, Bowen said.

Denver could get 1 to 2 inches of snow by Sunday morning. Another system could bring more snow on Monday, she said.
