Mild start to December, but snow is coming

DENVER -- The warm and dry conditions of November look to spill into the first few days of December.

In Denver, expect mainly sunny skies on Friday, Saturday and Sunday along with highs in the low to mid-60s.

Given all the dry weather of late, it would be a good idea to do some hand watering of trees and shrubs this weekend.

Snow will return the mountains on Sunday as the next storm system approaches.

As much as 4-8 inches of accumulation is possible across most mountains areas. This is good news for ski resorts that could use snow fresh snow.

A cold front will slide south across the eastern Plains on Monday, dropping temperatures in the 40s and bringing some snow.

Light accumulation is possible along the Front Range and in Denver. It will turn even colder on Tuesday with highs only in the 30s.

And the overall temperature trend for next week will be to stay in the 30s and 40s.
