Strong winds will run down the mountains today, but we will not see quite the gusts that rocked southern Colorado on Sunday. The winds will blow with sustained speeds of 10 to 20 mph, but the gusts could get into the 30 and 40 mph range, especially through the afternoon. Warm air will follow the strong winds today with highs back into the 50s and a few 60s to the plains. Tonight we’ll see much lighter winds but lows will stay mild in the upper 20s and low 30s.

The next few days will stay windy, but Wednesday will be the next day to warrant an alert for wind speeds. Snow in the mountains is expected through the end of the week off and on, but little to no snow will hop over into southern Colorado. The next chance for snow in the southern Colorado area is Wednesday night to Thursday, but the front range and southern mountains as well as the Palmer Divide are really only the areas that could see snowfall.
