Strong winds warm up Southern Colorado

Dust Storm Advisory is in effect until 4pm today for Pueblo, Huerfano, and Las Animas Counties. Strong winds today will cause areas of blowing dust mainly along I-25 between Pueblo, Walsenburg, and Trinidad. Visibility may drop to less than 1/4 mile at times.

Wind will be a big issue for some parts of Southern Colorado through the first half of today with a high wind warning in effect for areas over the higher elevations, adjacent foothills, and Front Range. Locations included under the warning can expect less wind in the 5 to 15 and 10 to 20 mph range this afternoon and evening.

Otherwise, today will be a partly sunny, dry, and mild day. Today's downsloping wind and a ridge of high pressure will help temperatures jump into the 60s/70s in most spots. The dry weather will continue through the first half of the new week with above average highs in the 50s/60s. Winds will remain breezy at times though mainly over the mountains and foothills. Cooler air and a chance for precipitation enters the forecast late in the workweek.
