The windiest day will be Thursday with gusts as high as 30 mph. These stronger winds will increase fire danger on Thursday across southern Colorado as a whole.
There will be weak cold fronts late in the week and this weekend. So you can expect to see gradually cooling temperatures from Friday onward. We are watching the potential for some mountain snow and rain or a wintry mix in the plains this weekend so stay tuned as we gather more data.
