This weekend is going to be rough, Denver.

The National Weather Service says there’s a 50 percent chance of snow, mainly before 10 a.m. After that it’ll gradually clear up.

Snow is all fine and good, but the high is only going to be around 8 degrees. We’ll hit that around noon, then drop back down to for the rest of the day. The wind chill could be as low as -15 degrees.

To this, I’d just like to say, no. NO.

And there’s worse to come. The overnight low will be around -7, with a wind chill of -18.

On Sunday, the high will climb all the way up to about 28, but somehow the wind chill will be as low as -15.

So, I don’t know, just stay in bed, I guess.
