November 2019 in Colorado

Hi. My family is planning it's first ever vacation out west beginning around November 21 through the end of the month. We would like to do a road trip between Denver and Las Vegas, but are unsure which city to start in without knowing what kind of weather to expect. If the weather in Colorado is going to be rough, we thought we would just us LV as a starting point and go in a different direction. Can you tell me what to expect in and around Denver in late November? Many thanks.

Weather June 2020

Congrats! That's a gorgeous wedding date in Colorado...we got married a week earlier and in the last 15 years have never had a bad weather day then. We did have an afternoon storm on our wedding date which is really common...they pass quickly but often include lightening from about 4pm-6pm.
