11 Breaking Weather Team Forecast Discussion
Saturday, December 20th
Temperatures will drop to the 20s and teens overnight Saturday.
Sunday will be another confortable day with afternoon temps into the 40s and 50s once again. The day will also offer more cloud cover, especially as we head into the late afternoon and evening hours ahead of our next approaching system.
This system will bring a round of fresh snow to the mountains over the weekend but areas along and East of I-25 will remain dry. Late overnight hours on Sunday will bring our first chance of snow to the I-25 corridor, improving through the day on Monday. This looks to be a tricky forecast to nail down... but models suggest locally heavy snowfall will be possible as heavy bands of snow move through. STAY TUNED in the coming days for updates. Monday will also be colder in the 30s and 40s.
Tuesday through Christmas Eve look fairly calm with temps gradually returning to the 40s and 50s.
Christmas Day will be dry for most across SE Colorado but we are tracking a system to arrive late on Thursday. The best chance for snow on Christmas will be across W Colo. and over the mountains W of I-25... Areas East of I-25 will likely stay dry through Thursday night as latest model runs are trending AWAY from significant snowfall around the holiday.
Friday could bring snow showers to SE Colorado, but it doesn't look to be anything significant.
The tail end of next week looks to bring a cool down to the 30s!
