Plenty of sunshine in the forecast but frigid temperatures persist...
Today: A few clouds and flurries possible this morning, then becoming sunny. Temperatures remain cold, however with lower valley highs in the 10s, 0s to 10s in the High Country and upper 10s to low 20s in the Four Corners. Most areas will see calm winds with the exception of the 491 corridor where northwest winds will make things feel a lot colder.
Tonight Mostly clear to clear and very cold. Patchy fog possible in valleys. -10s to -0s in the lower valleys, -30s to -0s in the High Country.
Tuesday: Sunny and cold. Highs in the 10s for the lower valleys.
Extended: High pressure moving in will slowly warm our mid and upper level temperatures. This will mean that High Country locations... including most of the ski resorts will see warm weather by the end of the week. For the valleys, however, it's a different story. High pressure will strengthen the inversions, which will mean the dense, cold air will remain pooled in valley locations. Highs will struggle to get out of the 10s and low 20s for the rest of the week. Lows may remain below 0 unless a sea of low clouds develop again, which is possible. In that case, highs will remain in the same neighborhood, but lows will be about 10º warmer.
