  • Snowy Garden of the Gods by Lars Leber

For now, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day look cloudy, showery, and mild.

There's also no sign of a warmup, so be ready to finish 2017 with highs in the 20s and lows near 10 degrees. The high will be 65; winds will be southwest 5 to 10 miles per hour. Thursday is chilly in the low and mid-40s and there will be plenty of sunshine.

The Monday morning commute may be slippery in parts of the state with snow showers developing overnight and continuing during the early morning. Any last minute Christmas shopping that weekend will have to endure morning temperatures in the teens and daytime highs only getting as warm as the 30s.

Tomorrow: Partly sunny. Highs: 50-55. Clouds encroach by late this week as we head into an unfortunately timed soggy weekend that coincides with Christmas.

"Christmas Day is looking quite cold", Packingham said, noting people with pets will want to take precautions.

There is a chance of a spell of rain on Thursday across the southern half of the country, but amounts still look likely to be small and it will become mainly dry again later.

Good Tuesday. After the morning fog burns off, we will have clouds building in through the day with one or two isolated showers this afternoon. Cold and frosty Thursday night in the north of the country, but remaining mild in the south. Risk of fog, mostly in the north. Stay tuned and we will continue to monitor the forecast for you over the coming days.

Anemic sunshine and continued cold are forecast for Christmas Day with a high near 2 degrees. Expect temperatures in the low to mid-30s by mid-afternoon.
