The warm and dry weather continued on Tuesday with highs in the upper 60s to low 70s for Denver and Eastern Colorado. The record high in Denver for Nov. 23rd is 73 degrees, set in 1915 - it barely held as the high reached 71 degrees at DIA.
There has been an increase in clouds over Colorado and a few light rain and snow showers in the Southwest Mountains, ahead of the next cold front that will move across the state tonight and Wednesday.
For Denver and the Front Range, expect increasing clouds tonight and then a slight chance of light rain and snow on Wednesday. This next cold front will usher in some colder weather right before Thanksgiving. Expect highs in the middle 40s on Wednesday and low 50s on Thursday.
Skies will clear once the front rolls through and there be plenty of sunshine on Thanksgiving. It will be cold on Thursday morning for the Turkey Trot, but highs will be in the low 50s by 4 p.m.
Friday will be dry and warm with highs in the mid-60s. Saturday will be slightly cooler, but still dry with highs in the upper 50s. Sunday and Monday will be warm and dry again with highs in the 60s.
When we do finally see some snow in Denver, it will be the latest first snowfall ever on record. Denver has gone 216 days since the last snowfall. The longest streak on record is 235 days, set in 1887, although the National Weather Service is skeptical on the accuracy of such an old record. More recent records — kept since 1948 for downtown — show that the previous longest snow-less streak was 211 days, set in 1977 and 1992.
The extended forecast continues to call for dry and mild weather until late next week.
