Vail’s opening day was originally planned for Friday, Nov. 17, but is now tentatively scheduled for Thanksgiving Day.

A quick moving storm is expected sometime late Thursday or early Friday and it could drop up to a foot of snow on northwest-facing slopes located west of the Continental Divide.

But beyond that the outlook for cold and snow doesn’t look too good for Colorado.

The latest long-range forecast from NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center calls for warm and dry conditions through the end of the month.
