REST OF THE WEEK: Mainly clear tonight with lows in the 10’s and 20’s. Winds stay breezy, especially for the higher elevations. Monday will get a gusty day with blowing dust possible, especially for the plains and open areas. Gusts from the northwest will easily exceed 30 mph. We’ll have colder temperatures with highs in the 30’s and 40’s, feeling even colder with the wind. Snow will develop for the mountains and try to slip towards the higher elevations west of I-25. Most of the lower elevations look to stay dry with just a very small chance for a stray shower/flurry. The bigger concern will be the wind. We stay breezy for the rest of the week with temperatures warming back up. 50’s return by Wednesday. Thursday will be another gusty day. Models have some difference for the later part of the week. Snow showers will be abundant in the mountains. Some areas west of I-25 will have the best shot at seeing moisture. Lower elevations will have very minor chances for showers.
