Today’s Forecast:
The forecast is going to be amazing today with lots of sunshine and light winds! Sure, it'll be chilly out there in the morning and evening, but whenever you can get daytime highs in the 60s and 70s in mid-November, that's pretty awesome. Overnight we'll be cold and calm.

Extended Outlook:
Wednesday is going to be a weather alert day for high fire danger. Strong daytime winds and low humidity are going to combine to give southern Colorado high fire danger.

The rest of the week is going to be slightly cooler and we'll stay breezy through the weekend. Highs on Friday will be in the 50s and lower 60s across the lower elevations with some rain and snow possible out west in the mountains. We still have a chance for rain and snow in the high country on Saturday, but our chances look a lot lower at this point.
