DENSE FOG ADVISORY UNTIL 9 A.M.
Partial clearing and overnight cooling into the upper 30s has created a blanket of dense fog, especially thick along the I-70 corridor. Be careful on the roads through early Saturday.
High pressure will build in from the west, with some sunshine Saturday and unseasonably mild weather.
Meanwhile, a powerful winter storm over the Southwest is bringing heavy rain and mountain snow to Southern California and Arizona — more than one foot in places– and is spreading northeast across New Mexico and Colorado. High winds, torrential downpours, mudslides, and even a tornado have snarled travel in the deserts and over high terrain.
Clouds will slowly increase Saturday afternoon on another balmy winter day, ahead of that storm traveling from the Texas Panhandle to near Duluth, Minnesota, and then slowing down due to intensification, while accompanied by widespread rain and gusty southwest winds.
A cold front will push through Sunday night, ending the rain and ushering in seasonable temperatures next week through New Year’s Day.
