Chilly, dry Thanksgiving ahead of next storm system

DENVER -- Thanksgiving will be dry in the Denver area, but with all the snow on the ground, temperatures will top out around 40 degrees.

For Denver and the Front Range, expect some patchy fog early on Thanksgiving that will burn off around 9 a.m. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy at times. So, there will be some sunshine. Temperatures will only reach the upper 30s to low 40s. Grab a jacket, hat and gloves if you're going to be out on the holiday.

A storm system will bring snow to the Colorado mountains on Thanksgiving. The best snow will be in the San Juans in southwest Colorado. Snow will turn heavy in those areas on Friday, making travel difficult. Snow will continue to fall until late on Saturday, so make sure to factor the poor travel conditions into your plans.

Metro Denver will have some light snow or flurries late on Friday. A few flurries could still be around early on Saturday. Currently, accumulation looks very light -- ranging from a dusting to less than an inch in most places along the Front Range.

It will be windy on Saturday, but the sun will quickly return.

The rest of the forecast heading through the end of the weekend and most of next week looks dry and milder with temperatures returning to the 50s.
