Good morning. Today will be cooler in Denver, with a high of 62 and a 70 percent chance of precipitation late this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. That could come as showers or a thunderstorm just after 4 p.m., right around when the 4/20 rally is kicking into gear.

Showers remain likely and temperatures cooler through Saturday morning, with a chance of non-accumulating snow late Friday. On Sunday, it’s back to sunny and 75.

In the mountains, light snow already is falling and could deliver 4 to 10 inches by Friday morning, with more coming throughout that day, NWS forecasts.
