Today’s Forecast:
Lots of wind tumbles down from the jet stream across the mountains and out through the lower elevations today. The winds will stay strongest out west into the mountains and out along the mountain valleys from late morning through the early afternoon. Temperatures will stay seasonal today, but likely feel chilly due to the strong winds. Overnight we're going to see a lighter breeze with clear skies and chilly overnight temperatures.

Extended Outlook:
Most of this week will either be windy or breezy, but the strongest gusts will generally stay out west into the high country. We'll be dry most of this week but the mountains will start to see snow on Thursday and last into Friday. Flurries are possible across southern Colorado on Friday, but the chance is very low at this point.
