is off. and we absolutely will be cranking those up because that's the other part of the story, not only expecting rain and snow tomorrow but it will be much colder, in fact temperatures will drop about 40 degrees from where we will be today compared to where we will be tomorrow. right now over at u.s. gardens, everybody around colorado is above normal and of course it will be above normal all day long. far above normal an impact so far above, we expect record heat along the front range as we soar close to 80 degrees. the record as it stands now for 16 november is 77 but i think we will poll -- blow that out with 79 in november -- 79 in boulder in some areas could come closer to 90 than 80. red flag warning for the selfies part of the state. front range mountains and foothills are also under a red flag warning today with warm
winds combining for an elevated fire threat today. tonight into tomorrow night they are under a winter storm watch. mountain valleys in the western part of the state are looking at 1 to 3 inches of snow. mountain areas to the east of us not technically any warnings watches her advisers but we still see accumulating there as this cold front moves in. probably in the forecast for places like some -- summit county. not a huge storm but we will take anything we can get considering how dry it's been lately. at 6:00 tomorrow morning can see snow spreading through the colorado high country. 9 am still mainly dry around
little bit in the morning commute but it will be mainly after that that the precipitation starts to pick up, starting his cold rain and then eventually transitioning to light snow for the front range but remember, it's near 80 degrees today and so even though an inch or two of snow could fall, i don't think much will accumulate and if we do see it accumulating it will probably be limited to roost -- to rooftops, vehicles and grassy surfaces, probably not the road. tomorrow 42 and it will be a struggle to get there and then friday 40 behind the storm system, sunny but honestly cold, 51 saturday and then back to the 60s on we just caught the right moment here with some flashing lights heading this direction. they are just going and picking up cones typically when we see these flashing lights. we will see some slowing that will develop in the northbound direction as you kiss -- as you get past hampden but it should quickly pass. we did make a phone call on this what was first reported as a structure fire but it's just
