Thanksgiving week coincides with a stormier pattern to last well into December

nov-2015-snow-6

DENVER — The holiday week had its first storm system pass through the state leaving behind colder air and some rain and snow. Tuesday’s storm was the second in a series of storms that will continue to remind us that it is late fall after all.

The next storm system will arrive Wednesday night and Thursday morning. This one will bring some snow to the mountains, otherwise reinforcing cooler air for the entire state. The wind will howl a bit more with this storm system, too.

The fourth storm of the month will move through Sunday, with a chance of snow statewide including the Denver area. And, yet another shot of cooler air. The Bronco game will be chilly for sure.

Tuesday, we will have yet another storm…

This series of storms to bring cold air and chances for snow with each. From Thanksgiving Day through mid-December we may see 5 to 8 storm systems bring impacts to Colorado in one form or another.

Snow amounts, and chances of, will vary from storm to storm. Each will keep a fresh supply of cool/cold air.

Most of the first week of December will be much cooler than average – Denver’s highs may stay in the 30s to lower 40s from day-to-day. With overnight temperatures in the teens and 20s.

This storm pattern is good news for us. The state is really struggling in the snow department.

What snow had fallen melted quickly during our warmer than average days throughout the majority of November. So, the next couple of weeks are a blessing in a way.

I’ll be sure to keep you posted with greater details on impacts with each passing storm. ¬†Just know, the pattern is more active than it has been since early last spring.
