Snow ends early Thursday, then there's afternoon sunshine and cold conditions

High in the mid to upper 20s.

The storm responsible for our first measurable snow in more than two months will gradually move southeast of Colorado through the day on Thursday.

The big story today is the cold with high temperatures only in the low 20s with wind chills near zero. Wednesday will also be windy and cold with snow showers and highs in the 20s to near 30.

Brisk and chilly with sunshine and patchy clouds. But as of now the snow looks too light for anything more than a dusting to a light coating, if that. Afternoon temperatures reach the lower 30s.

You can follow my updates here and on Twitter @growingwisdom. But still it's another chilly day, with winds from the northwest gusting near 30 miles per hour, keeping wind chills mainly in the upper 20s to low 30s under partly sunny skies.

Saturday should be on the breezy side, but overall not quite as cold, with partly to mostly sunny skies and highs near 40. The overnight period is quiet with partly clear skies.

Elsewhere across the United Kingdom sub-zero temperatures are also forecast, with more wintry showers in parts by the end of the week.

As we head towards the weekend, there will be a few more chances for snow. Lows should dip well down into the teens. Expect a breezy day, with increasing clouds. But with Sunday highs in the 40s, anything that falls should be in the form of rain. It is possible that much of the city will get at least enough snow to lightly cover the ground, but the airport may be missed!

Light snow will develop in the northern mountains in the early evening and will move into the Front Range foothills and western Denver suburbs tonight.
