The warm and dry weather pattern carries us through the middle of the work week as December comes in a a lamb.
Colder air will move into the eastern half of the country late next week and weekend, but the "big" cold will be well west of New England. There will be lots of clouds today, so temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than yesterday, but still well above average in the mid-70s.
December will get off to a nice start with sunny skies and temperatures reaching into the mid to upper 50s.
Temperatures will be back closer to average for the rest of the week with highs in the mid to upper 40s.
Skies will be quite clear on Saturday night into Sunday, which will lead to a colder start on Sunday morning, but the sun isn't going anywhere. Lows Saturday night will be in the low 40s with Sunday night lows in the low 50s. We'll have sunny skies Saturday with some clouds moving in Sunday but it will stay dry. This will be ahead of our cold front and we might see this rain helping out our now drought situation and the burn bans in effect.
It's been another chilly morning with temperatures now in the 40s with plenty of sunshine and breezy south winds. That rain will precede some sharp cooling that will mean lows in the 20s and highs in the 30s on Thursday. Shower chances will be limited to extreme northern New Mexico and southern Colorado with light snow showers possible at best when the cold front passes through.
Late Wednesday, a cold front will push through, bringing a decent chance for showers and a considerable chill down afterwards.
