Denver weather today, April 9: Better than this weekend, not as good as tomorrow

After this weekend’s sampler platter of Denver spring weather, we can expect a slight chance of showers today, but mostly sunny with the high almost reaching 60 degrees.

February has been a big month for the Denverite newsroom and we’re excited to announce the arrival of another new reporter! Esteban L. Hernandez grew up in Aurora and went to CU for journalism. He’s been working at the New Haven Register covering city government, immigration, the opioid crisis and more.

He’s joining us to write about Colorado politics, the suburbs, a bit of city government here and there, and other stories around Denver.

It’s already been quite a busy week in Denver — and Esteban’s been busy talking to lots of people about the shape of the gubernatorial race — but I managed to ask him a few questions over our work chat to help introduce him to Denverite readers.


Denver weather today: I’ve got a bad feeling about this

The National Weather Service should have just used a frowny face for today’s forecast.

The National Weather Service should have just used a frowny face for today’s forecast.

We’re looking at a high of 25, a low of 5, “patchy snow,” “freezing drizzle,” and a “blustery” morning. Tonight, we’re expecting more snow and wind chill around 7 below. Happy birthday, presidents.

Looking ahead a bit, it’s going to stay cold — but this should be the worst of the precipitation.
