KUSA - While snow continues for our northern and central mountains, sunshine and gusty winds will push temperatures along the Front Range above average, with the warm up continuing through the weekend, according to the Colorado weather forecast.
A WINTER STORM WARNING remains in effect for our northern and central mountains until 5 p.m. Thursday. An additional 2 to 7 inches of snow is expected near Steamboat, Vail, Snowmass, Rabbit Ears Pass and the Continental Divide. This is the last of a storm system that has brought more than a foot of snow to many mountain areas over the past several days.
As the snow moves out of the High Country, dry weather will move into Colorado.
Westerly winds will gust to 60 mph Thursday in the foothills and northern and central mountains, making visibility difficult with the falling and blowing snow. Those same westerly winds will help locations east of I-25 warm up. Temperatures along the Front Range will be in the middle to upper 40s Thursday.
Dry and breezy conditions will take over the state for the weekend so expect the warm up to continue. Highs in Denver by Sunday afternoon will be in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees.
