Denver has a few more days of cold weather with possible snowfall Wednesday before a warmup for the weekend.
Highs in the city will stay right around 40 degrees Tuesday and Wednesday then heat up to the mid to high 50s by Saturday.
Tuesday will see some patchy fog, mainly out near Denver International Airport, until about 10 a.m. Freezing drizzle is also possible in the northern Wyoming border areas of Larimer and Weld Counties, according to forecasters at the National Weather Service in Boulder; some of that could drift down into the foothills near the western suburbs, but Denver will likely stay clear of it.

Looking at Wednesday, a round of snow is possible on the plains, following a line south from Denver to Akron. There is a 20% chance of snowfall in Denver during the day, but that chance increases to 40% into the evening mainly before 11 p.m.
Accumulation for Denver is likely to stay less than half an inch.
Denver skies after that are expected to stay clear and sunny through the weekend into next week.
