Like yesterday, breezy southwesterly winds ahead of an approaching cold front will allow for quite mild temperatures -- some 15 degrees above normal. We'll see plenty of clouds and a few scattered showers as the front pushes through. In its wake we'll look for much colder conditions with sunshine returning on Friday. Temperatures will remain below normal through the start of next week.
ThanksgivingCloudy & mild; shower?
We'll look for mostly cloudy skies today along with breezy southwesterly winds 10-20mph and very mild temperatures near 70 degrees (only 5 degrees shy of the record high for this date). A few spots may see a stray shower or sprinkle during the afternoon hours, but most places will remain dry. Windy, clearing, and turning much cooler overnight, with lows from 35-40.
FridaySunny, breezy & colder.
As high pressure builds into the region on Friday behind today's cold front, we'll look for abundant sunshine, breezy NW winds 10-20mph and high temperatures only in the mid to upper 40s. Quite cool Friday night, with lows ranging from the low 20s across the coolest suburbs to near 30 downtown.
The WeekendRemaining chilly.
Expect mostly sunny skies and very chilly temperatures (some 10+ degrees below normal) on Saturday, with temperatures only reaching the mid 40s. Some increase in clouds Saturday night and not as cold with lows ranging from the upper 20s to the mid 30s. We'll look for a blend of clouds and sun on Sunday with high temperatures in the upper 40s and milder-still overnight lows from 35-40.
A Look Ahead
- An approaching storm system will bring clouds to the area on Monday and a chance for rain later in the day into Tuesday.
- Temperatures look to moderate considerably during the first half of next week, with highs in the 50s to near 60 and overnight lows in the 40s.
It's Snowing Somewhere
Many of you know that I relocated to Boulder, CO this past summer. Since it's now late November and I'm sure some of you snow-lovers are hankering for the white stuff, I'll let you live vicariously through the season's first significant accumulating snowfall I experienced in Boulder -- late Tuesday into yesterday morning. This snowfall occurred nearly a month later than usual, and in response to our recent warm, snowless weather, even Vail and Steamboat have delayed their opening days
