Today: The air overhead will continue to warm but we'll likely have more clouds too. High temperatures should reach the 50s and 60s for most areas although a few spots on the far southeastern plains could reach the lower 70s.
Tonight: Partly cloudy with low temperatures in the 20s and 30s for most areas, but the high mountain valleys will again be significantly colder.
Extended: Monday should be mostly cloudy and breezy but still mild with high temperatures in the 50s and 60s for most areas. Colder air will begin to move over the state starting Tuesday with accumulating snow likely to fall over the mountains along and west of the Continental Divide late Tuesday and Tuesday night. It's possible a few flakes could fall over and near the eastern mountains but it does not appear that accumulating snow is very likely. Christmas Day looks partly cloudy and cool for eastern Colorado with scattered flurries or light snow showers possible over the ski resorts. The end of the week looks to remain chilly with high temperatures in the 30s and 40s for eastern Colorado. A storm could affect mainly the southeastern plains with some rain and snow Friday into Saturday.
