The system responsible for bringing cold and snow to Colorado the last couple of days is currently situated over Southern California. It'll slowly move east towards Texas over the next few days. This will keep our weather somewhat unsettled through the weekend.
For today, it'll be mostly cloudy and cold with a few flurries possible. Highs will struggle to make it to 30 degrees in most spots. Another round of snow is possible across all of Southern Colorado later tonight. Through Sunday morning, an additional trace to an inch of new snow is possible for areas north of Highway 50 including Colorado Springs, areas along and south of Highway 50 including Pueblo look to pick up an additional trace to 2 inches, and then the Sangre de Cristo and Wet Mountains are likely to receive 3 to 4 inches of new snow.
The chance of snow will diminish over the region into the day Sunday, but the cold temps and cloud cover will stay put. Expect gradually clearing skies during the first half of the workweek. Temperatures will slowly warm as well. By Tuesday, more sunshine will be overhead and highs will return to the 50s.
Locally, Thanksgiving weekend looks quiet, dry, and comfortable for now with mostly sunny skies in the forecast plus above average highs in the 50s.
