Extended outlook forecast:
Fire Weather Watches are in effect for Wednesday due to strong wind gusts and really low humidity. Grass fires in the plains could spark and spread easily in the afternoon.

Snow will start to move into the state Wednesday night and leave Friday afternoon. We'll start to see snow on the western slope Wednesday night, with more widespread and heavy snow in the high country Thursday.

Locally, we could see a wintry mix and snow hit the mountains and valleys Thursday night through Friday morning. I-25 has a chance for snow showers Thursday night and early Friday morning, but exact totals are still very much up in the air. It'll be very windy Thursday, and that could really limit any snow accumulation on I-25 until early Friday morning.

Breezy and mild weather is expected over the weekend.
