Nice Today, Unsettled Later

Weather Summary: Temperature highs today should push into the upper 50's for many of us, with a 60 degree reading not out of the question.. Dry conditions will be the story today, but tonight and tomorrow will likely be a different story. Rain and snow will move into Colorado after midnight tonight, bringing rain showers to the valley and snow to the mountains. This will not be a major storm system in terms of strength, but it will linger for a while. Rain and snow will be possible over the entire Thanksgiving weekend, from Thursday through Sunday. On Thanksgiving itself, we will most likely be looking at 3 to 8 inches of snow in the high country, especially over the Continental Divide and the Front Range, with snow extending into Denver and further into the plains. Closer to home, the snow will likely not be as heavy, but could still cause some problems on the roads. Snow will also be possible Friday through Sunday, but accumulations will likely be lighter, even in the mountains.

That being said, highways and Interstates over the mountain passes will be snow packed and icy in spots, but they should be passable. Slow down and drive safely - it's better to take a little more time to be safe rather than sorry.
