For those of us who live in and along the foothills we don’t want a repeat of the Christmas Day windstorm that scoured parts of Jefferson and Boulder counties with winds exceeding 90 mph. Although I don’t expect the winds to be that strong, we are likely to see some strong westerly wind gusts late Tuesday and early Wednesday in some locations in and along the foothills. I would not be surprised to see a reports of over 70 mph.
Temperatures should be near average most of this week, and likely a bit above average by Friday. A cold front should cool us back down for the weekend, but neither bitter cold nor significant snowfall is expected at this time.
