We’re in for some wild fall weather swings. The high in Denver is 80 degrees today with clear skies, according to the National Weather Service.

That changes as a cold front starts to roll in. First, winds will gradually increase. Then, snow showers will develop in the mountains, putting up to 3 inches on some slopes, NWS predicts. By midnight, the cooler temperatures and gusty winds will reach Denver.

The high on Saturday will cool to 56 degrees and windy conditions will persist into early Sunday morning. From there, things warm right back up into the 70s, likely until another front arrives on Thursday.
