Today’s highs in the low 50s were about right on the nose when it comes to normal in late November. It’s been an up-and-down month, as it tends to be, but we’re still on target to finish a few degrees above what is typical, thanks to a very warm start. In that sense, getting to the 60s on Wednesday might also fit the bill. It’ll be brief warmth, though.

Through tonight: While briefly thinned this evening, clouds will hang tough tonight. A few showers will move into the area during the predawn as lows make the 40s.

Tomorrow (Wednesday): The heaviest shower activity may line up with the rush hour, with higher coverage possible through about late morning. Afternoon will be mostly dry, but another quick-passing line of scattered showers may move by before sunset. Winds will be gusty from the south early, perhaps as gusty as 35 or 40 mph in the midday. Winds will turn to come from the west late as the front passes and remain quite boisterous.

Snow! On the cold side of the current storm system throwing severe weather at the South, some snow fell in and around Denver last night and into today. It was generally light near the city but adds to a snowy month in the region.
