After a pretty nasty start to Thanksgiving week, today's sunshine will help to erase those bad memories! Afternoon highs on Tuesday will be around 5-10 degrees warmer, with lingering northerly wind gusts around 10-20 mph here in Southern Colorado.

Extended outlook forecast:
Further warming can be expected on Wednesday, which will be our nicest and warmest day of the week. My advice is to savor the sunshine that we'll see over the next couple of days as we're tracking a big change in the weather pattern late this week.
Thanksgiving Day will be cooler and mostly cloudy, but the snow looks like it should hold off until after sunset for most areas. Snow and cold on Friday will likely lead to impacts on the roadways during what's expected to be a busy Black Friday shopping day! Our afternoon high on Friday will only warm into the 20s and 30s. After a lows in the single digits and teens, Saturday will remain cold and unsettled, with more snow showers possible before we dry out on Sunday.
