Mild and dry conditions can be expected across Colorado for the days leading up to Thanksgiving.
Monday through Wednesday should be mild and dry. Highs in the mid to upper 50s expected on Tuesday and close to 60 degrees on Wednesday, under a mostly sunny sky.
A storm system off the West Coast will begin to move into the central Rockies on Thanksgiving Day. Clouds will increase in the mountains and over western Colorado with some rain and snow developing by evening.
Snow will increase in the mountains on Friday, while clouds begin to increase for Denver and the eastern plains. Friday will still be mild over eastern Colorado, with highs in the low to mid-50s.
The holiday weekend will feature some really great skiing thanks to the combination of recent snowfall and the addition of 6 to 12 inches of fresh powder from the stormy pattern beginning late Thursday.
For Denver and the eastern plains, Saturday will be windy and colder with snow likely. The amounts will not be heavy, but a few inches will be possible through the day.
Skies will clear on Sunday, but temperatures will remain chilly - in the 40s on the plains and 30s in the mountains. More snow will be likely next week as the weather pattern remains active over the western United States.
