It will be sunny but the high will only reach 35 in the afternoon, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.
“A cold front will push south across the area this morning. This will bring cooler temperatures. In addition, it will be windy across the eastern plains with gusts to 50 mph,” the weather service predicts.
Temperatures will plummet to around 16 degrees Wednesday night.
It will be mostly cloudy Thursday and there’s a 20 percent chance of rain after 11 a.m. The high on Thursday will be around 34 degrees with winds gusting up to 24 mph. The low Thursday night will be around 26 degrees.
“A weak system may bring light snow on Thursday and help keep cool air over the area,” the weather service says.
Temperatures will begin to rebound on Friday, with a high of 53 degrees. The weekend will be even warmer, with temperatures rising to about 60 degrees on both Saturday and Sunday, the weather service says.
“Dry conditions and a warming trend will begin Friday and continue through the weekend,” the weather service says.
