Denver weather: Snow takes the day off, but the bitter cold remains

Wednesday’s projected high temperature is 21 degrees and the low is a paltry 1, so your best look might be Mr. Autumn Man plus Mr. Winter Man at the same time.

After a chaotic Tuesday in which a snowstorm hit sooner and apparently harder than expected, Wednesday’s weather should be somewhat of a relief — at least in terms of snow.

The National Weather Service expects well under an inch of snow to fall through Wednesday morning, and then for it to taper off for good through the rest of the week.

But Wednesday’s projected high temperature is 21 degrees and the low is a paltry 1, so your best look might be Mr. Autumn Man plus Mr. Winter Man at the same time. Or maybe pajamas all day if that’s an option for you, as it is for kids in Denver Public Schools and Aurora Public Schools, which were both open yesterday until they weren’t. Jeffco Public Schools are on a two-hour delay.
