Dry across the region but with lots of wind in and out of the mountains.

We'll see 40 to 50 mph gusts in the mountains and valleys today, with 30 to 40 mph gusts along most of the interstate. Temperatures will be seasonal today but very cold overnight as the winds die down.

We'll stay mostly dry across the lower elevations this week, but the Raton Mesa could see a wintry mix Thursday evening and our southern mountains may see light snow Friday.
