DENVER -- The long range outlook from late Christmas night through the end of next week is looking much colder with periods of snow.

We get to enjoy a mild and dry Friday in Denver. A weak cold front slides in on Saturday with chilly 40s and some light snow.  Accumulation will be a dusting at best.  Your Sunday & Monday are both dry, sunny and cool.

Our attention is on a stronger cold front and storm system expected to get arrive late on Christmas.  It appears snow will develop late in the evening and continue into Wednesday.  A few inches of accumulation looks good for Denver and the Front Range.  A surge of even colder air arrives on Thursday along with even better snow.  Additional accumulation looks favorable.  So, we may not get a "White Christmas", but it will certainly start to look and feel like winter!
