Latest Update: November 28th, 2022- 5:30 AM

MONDAY: We’ll have a mild and dry Monday across the region. It will be our transition day as our next storm approaches from the NW. The approaching storm will lead to a windy morning along some of the eastern slopes where some gusts between 40-70 mph are likely. We’ll be breezy during the morning elsewhere with occasional gusts over 35 mph becoming common by the afternoon. Highs warm back into the 50s and low 60s with high clouds overhead. Mountain snow starts over the northwest part of the state in the afternoon.

MONDAY NIGHT: Snow showers increase over the ski resorts Monday evening and spread over our local mountain communities later in the night. We’ll see these spill into parts of the Front Range and Pikes Peak Region by morning. A cold front moves south across the plains, and it is possible many areas east of the mountains have our official high temperatures for Tuesday at midnight – temperatures will drop noticeably behind the front and the wind will kick up out of the north.

TUESDAY: Tuesday is the wintry day across the region, even for areas that don’t get much if any snow. It’ll be cloudy and much colder with daytime temps in the 20s and 30s. The heaviest snow with the system will certainly be over the mountains as you can see above. Any snow that falls along the Front Range in the heart of the viewing area is likely to be light outside of some isolated heavier amounts under a few bands that are likely to form. With the cold temperatures, snow will likely stick to roads, so we do expect some travel impacts as wind-driven snow is likely to be working from north to south across the region during the morning commute on Tuesday.

EXTENDED: We clear out Tuesday night, giving way to a cold start to Wednesday across the region. Lows will be in the single digits – teens for many southern Colorado Wednesday morning. It will still be a chilly day, but feeling nicer as sun returns in full force with highs in the 30s – 40s.

From there, we kick in a warming trend for the end of the week that will come with some occasional wind over the eastern slopes and an increase in fire danger. Highs will reach back into the 50s and 60s across the region. Next weekend a system moving over the state looks to bring snow to the ski-resorts and more wind locally.
