Meanwhile temperatures will remain unseasonably cool for the firth day in a row.

The chance for rain during the Rockies game is about 30% so a rain delay is possible.

In the mountains we have our first Winter Weather Advisory for the season within the CBS4 viewing area. It includes mountains west of Vail Pass including the higher terrain around Vail, Aspen, and Crested Butte. These areas should see at least 2-4 inches of accumulation above 10,000 feet. Farther to the southwest the mountains surrounding Telluride, Lake City, and Ouray will see 4-8 inches and the same is expected for the highest elevations along the Sangre de Cristo Mountains including La Veta Pass.
