It’s looking like a mild, dry period statewide for Colorado from Thanksgiving Day through Saturday, and maybe colder Sunday.
Until then, cool and windy will be the theme. Those west-northwest winds may become quite strong Tuesday beginning in the pre-dawn hours. Prepare for frequent gusts to 50 mph and maybe some local areas reaching 70 mph in and immediately along the foothills.
Some periods of snow are likely in the high mountains. Most Front Range areas will be dry, but some brief flurries or sprinkles are possible through Tuesday night.
If you are traveling, there is a major East Coast storm Wednesday and Wednesday night. It should be mostly rain in the coastal cities with snow inland. Expect some delays for airports in the Washington DC to Boston corridor, and possibly a ripple effect of delays to other airports as well.
