KUSA - Tuesday night lows dove well below zero. All Wednesday, just a few flurries will fall around the area with little to no accumulation, according to the Colorado weather forecast.
Skies will stay partly cloudy with extremely cold temperatures with highs only reaching single digits on Wednesday. DIA dropped to -19 degrees Wednesday morning, just 5 degrees shy of the record low temperature of -24 degrees set in 1989. The low downtown was -8 degrees.
The coldest Feb. 5 on record came back in 1989 with daytime highs reached 5 degrees. It is possible that we will be colder than that Wednesday afternoon with highs forecast to reach 4 in the Denver metro area.
Flurries with cold temperatures will stick around Thursday and Friday, again with very little snow accumulation expected. Highs Thursday will be in the lower teens with lower to middle 20s on Friday.
We have a chance to go a bit above freezing on Saturday, into the mid-30s. If the forecast holds, that would be 8 days in a row of below freezing temperatures.
Denver's longest streak of below freezing temperatures was from Nov. 15 to 29 in 1880. A full 14 days in a row below freezing.
