Extended outlook forecast:
Expect to see a very similar forecast for Thursday and Friday with high clouds and warmer-than-normal temperatures. On Saturday our next storm system arrives, bringing showers which may begin as rain then transition to snow, and snow continues into Sunday. There is still a discrepancy between model data on when the precipitation begins on Saturday and how long it lingers on Sunday or into Monday. Plan to see showers Saturday and Sunday with icy or snowy roads possible on Christmas Eve and possibly into Christmas morning. This doesn't look like a storm that will shut down the state and prevent travel for the holiday but do plan on wintry weather as you travel through Colorado.
