The wind across the I-25 corridor and Plains should begin to weaken around sunset, with occasional 20-30 mph gusts still possible through around midnight. Further weakening is expected as we roll into Sunday morning, with partly cloudy skies in our forecast. Active weather will remain possible overnight tonight and early Sunday for the mountains, especially for areas along and west of the Continental Divide.
**Don't forget that tonight we turn back our clocks by one hour as we transition back to standard time. That change officially will take place at 2:00 am Sunday. Also this should serve as a good reminder to check the batteries in your smoke detectors.**

Walsenburg and Trinidad forecast: Low: 20s/30s; High: 50s/60s; A Sunday morning cold front will bring a healthy dose of cooling to our forecast on Sunday, while keeping it breezy throughout the day.
Mountains forecast: Low: 20s/30s; High: 30s/40s; Dry weather is expected for at least the next 24 hours for the Wets and Sangres, but farther west, some of our state's northern and western mountain ranges will see more wintry weather.
Extended outlook forecast:
Some weak ridging early next week will allow for a warm-up to occur across Southern Colorado. At the same time, a deepening trough of low pressure along the West Coast will lead to another round of strong downslope winds here locally. This could bring increasing fire weather concerns to our region around the middle of the week as wind gusts by Wednesday could top 40-50 mph in some areas.
At this point, next week's storm looks to be more focused on wind rather than snow for the I-25 corridor and eastern Plains. If we see anything at all, and it looks pretty minimal, it would come either Wednesday night or Thursday.
