Detailed Forecast

Today: Buckle up for a blustery and chilly day throughout southern Colorado! We're tracking a chance for light rain/snow in the afternoon; however, much of the snow activity will take place over the central mountains - getting a few extra inches. Gusts today could range over 20 mph. Temperatures will also remain cool, only reaching the low 40s for highs into the plains and mid 30s for the mountains. 

Tonight: Partly cloudy skies with a chance for snow will take us through the night. Lows will drop into the single digits and teens throughout the region. Wind speeds will stay breezy, ranging between 10-20mph. Make sure to bundle up!

Extended:  Gradual warming will take place by the middle of this next week. Turkey Day is expected to be the warmest day, with highs into the low 60s throughout the plains. For those of your traveling the weekend following Thanksgiving, it appears we have another chance for snow beginning over the weekend  So, plan accordingly.
