Denver’s Christmas Day weather: Warm and gusty, while mountains ready for more snow

Christmas Day brings yet another winter storm into Colorado’s high country — while dry and gusty conditions on the plains make for elevated fire danger.

One mountain storm moves out Saturday morning, forecasters said, but another one is right on its heels. The best travel conditions will be late morning into afternoon and evening, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.

Drivers are encouraged to avoid mountain travel Sunday.

After a dumping earlier in the weekend, ski towns are expecting more accumulation. Vail and Steamboat Springs could see up to 6 inches of new snow, while Aspen could get up to 5 inches.

Highs in Denver, meanwhile, will reach the mid-50s Saturday, forecasters said.
