Thursday Evening Forecast; Cold, but a warming trend on the way

Posted at 3:43 PM, Dec 06, 2018

Forecast: Temperature-wise, it’s cold. Maybe 15F or more, below average. But, the temps will bottom out tonight and Friday, and begin recovering Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Not quite to “average” Friday, but yes for Saturday. In fact, they will continue to escalate until well above average for Monday & Tuesday of next week!

As for precipitation, just flurries east of the Divide Friday, ending by evening, zero accumulation. (Wets and Sangre’s pick up another 2-4″ above 8000 feet.) After that, no precip in sight for a week!

The forecast is simple. Friday flurry, dry thereafter…with a warming trend.
