Mild weather, but windy near the foothills, will start the week. Watch for localized gusts over 60 mph. We do have a Pacific cool front coming on Tuesday, but it will only make it a little cooler. The next chance for cold weather will be at the end of the week.
Pacific moisture will result in snowy periods (rain in the lower elevations) for the West Slope through Tuesday. Prepare for winter driving if you are heading over the high passes. Some of the moisture will cross into the Front Range region as snow showers for the higher foothills and mountains. A few flurries or sprinkles might make it to the plains near the foothills, but for the most part it should be dry in the lower foothills and plains.
