December 23, 2011
The holiday weekend weather continues to look favorable with mostly sunny conditions predicted for Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will remain cold, between zero to freezing, with gusty winds bringing the wind chill into the negative temperatures – to bundle up if you are venturing outside. Dense late-night and early-morning fog possible, which may reduce driving visibility to under ¼ mile to near zero in places. Allow extra time to reach your destination when traveling. After Christmas for travelers headed back home: significant snowfall possible along and west of the Continental Divide. See the links below for updates on weather and travel information.
