Happy Thanksgiving! Dry weather should continue along the Front Range into midday Friday. On Friday and Friday night much of the Colorado mountains will receive snow, with heavy amounts in the San Juan mountains. As a strong low pressure system heads up to the northern plains, there may be some squally showers in the eastern foothills and plains (snow or rain changing to snow) late Friday afternoon and night. Most of the Front Range urban corridor should get by with little or no accumulation, but some of the heavier squalls may produce an inch or two.
The main impact late Friday into Saturday for the Front Range will likely be strong wind gusts out of northwest (greater than 60 mph in some areas along the foothills). Hazardous blowing snow conditions are likely in some of the exposed areas of the foothills. In the lower elevations blowing snow can create local hazards, especially when the wind first arrives late Friday.
