Friday’s ferocious wind gusts that blew snow and caused road closures in the high country — and made life unpleasant on the plains — gave way Saturday morning to much calmer conditions.
The National Weather Service says the Denver area’s forecast calls for light winds and temperatures in the low- to mid-40s Saturday, with partly cloudy skies in the morning turning cloudier in the afternoon. Conditions are expected to stay dry into Sunday, when high temperatures are forecast to reach the low 50s.
Much calmer for today with partly to mostly cloudy skies, light winds and cool temperatures. West winds will persist over the higher mountains along with areas of blowing snow near the higher ridges and passes. Continued cool and dry for tonight with light winds. #COwx pic.twitter.com/dWyMKXbQ1B

The Denver Womxn’s March was set to step off at 10 a.m. Saturday in Civic Center.
Interstate 70 in the mountains was fully open Saturday after a closure near Vail Friday night, though the Colorado Department of Transportation said roads were still icy and snow-packed, slowing the heavy morning ski traffic.
