Extended Outlook:
Dry and cold by Wednesday morning, with 10s and 20s for the early morning hours. Highs will rebound nicely for Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day, warming back into the 40s and 50s. A weak disturbance pushes into Southern Colorado late on Thanksgiving, bringing the chance for snow flurries and light snow showers from Thursday night into Friday morning. This will produce a cooler end to the week, with highs behind the front on Friday dropping 5-10 degrees.
