We are under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for snow, cold and slick roads. Cold air is already sliding into Colorado and temperatures will continue to tumble through Thanksgiving. Light snow will develop across the area as we head later into the night. There could be some patchy freezing drizzle for a short time before it changes to all snow. We are expecting light snow to last through your holiday with a slightly better chance for steady snow late in the day. Snow totals on Thanksgiving will range from 1″-3″ in metro Denver. The snow combined with temps in the 20s will cause icy roads, so plan extra time if you have to travel. The light snow will last through the first part of Friday and we will add another couple of inches of accumulation bringing totals between 2″-6″ up and down the Front Range. It will be even colder on Friday with single digit temps early and highs only in the teens. Your weekend stays chilly with readings in the 20s & 30s along with a snow shower or two possible both Saturday & Sunday. If you are going to the Sunday night Broncos-Patriots game it WILL be cold…dress warm!
