Extended outlook forecast:
Overall, a relatively quite weather pattern for the week before Christmas. A Mix of sun and clouds throughout the week as the Polar Jet Stream moves north into Central Canada. Doing so allows a large ridge of high pressure to move in, providing lots of sunshine and above average temperatures. As we get close to Christmas weekend, Colorado's weather will change as 2 areas of low pressure will battle it out - one from the Subtropical Jet Stream, and the other from the Polar Jet Stream. With moisture moving back into the state, there is a chance for some flurries/snow showers on Christmas Eve. Will the Polar Jet get back to Colorado in time? Stay Tuned!...
