DENVER (CBS4) -Cloudy skies across the Front Range this morning, and we won’t be seeing much sunshine today. Highs climb to the upper 40s and low 50s today, and we’ll have gusty winds across the Front Range. The big, strong winds are mainly in the foothills today. A High Wind Warning is in place through 5:00 am on Wednesday for winds between 30 to 50 mph. Some gusts could top between 75 to 90 mph! In the high country, more snow today through tomorrow afternoon. Mix in some wind, and visibility will be tough at times. Plan for a longer drive through the mountains today and early tomorrow. Winter Weather Advisories are in place from today through tomorrow with western mountains looking to pick up another 8 to 14 inches! Denver and the plains may see a little snow overnight into tomorrow morning, but it doesn’t look like more than an inch or so.
Tomorrow, the snow starts to wind down late in the morning into the early afternoon. The winds will start to die down as well. The roads may still be tough in the afternoon, but conditions should be greatly improved. Once you get to your final destination, get ready for a great Thanksgiving. Highs jump to the 60s across the Front Range, and lots of 40s in the mountains. We should have clear, sunny skies across the state. Perfect for morning Turkey Bowl, hiking, or skiing before the big meal. After Thursday, we stay warm and mild through the weekend.
