Extended Outlook: A stronger system will bring snow back to the forecast over the mountains on Thursday, with several feet possible over the San Juan Mountains and Wolf Creek Pass.

Instead of snow, the wind will increase across the area from late Thursday night into Friday. Dry, cooler and windy weather follows this weekend.
