Temperatures will soar into the 60s and even 70s along the Front Range this weekend. Then an arctic cold front on Monday will drop temperatures more than 40 degrees and trigger a good chance for snow. That could lead to some school and business closings on Tuesday morning.
Dry weather and somewhat warmer temperatures will prevail on the final day of what will become the eight driest January on record in Denver. The city officially received 0.4 inches of snow on Thursday bringing the total for the month to 0.9 inches. And although January is usually the driest month of the year and usually the least snowiest of the winter months, the measly snow total will be enough to land January 2020 on the Top 10 list. The month will tie with January 1970 for the eight least snowiest January in Denver since records started in 1872.
