We just had a record high, but this is Colorado so it's going to snow Thursday

We may break the record high of 80� today ahead of a mid-morning cold front for Thursday. While we're expecting snow Thursday afternoon, accumulation appears to be modest. Very cold Friday morning!

DENVER - Sunshine and westerly winds pushed temperatures into the lower 80s Wednesday afternoon -- in fact, the 82 degrees recorded at Denver International Airport is officially a record high! 

Windy conditions overnight into Thursday will keep temperatures mild through the morning commute.  

A cold front moving in after the morning commute Thursday will bring cooler air and light snow for Thursday afternoon and evening.

For the Front Range mountains and foothills above 7,000 feet, a total of 3 to 7" is forecast by late Thursday night.

Temperatures will be in the low 20s early Friday morning.
