Wednesday, temperatures are expected to warm to well above seasonal averages, with winds increasing to 20 to 35 mph and gusts of 55 mph or greater. Expect wind to die down somewhat by midnight with a few gusts still possible into Thursday morning.
The first in a series of disturbances will move into western Colorado Wednesday and Thursday, with snow developing Wednesday evening over the western and central mountains. This will lower snow levels over the western and central mountains where several inches of snowfall are possible above 9 kft through Thursday afternoon.
A cold front will move south across the plains during the day Thursday, but only a slight chance for rain and storms are expected.
Friday, temperatures remain cool with a slight chance for precipitation. The cool trend will continue into the weekend. Highs will generally be in the 50s to 60s over the plains. Also, a slight chance for precipitation will remain in the forecast for southern Colorado.
