More wind Front Range, more snow mountains

6:20 AM, Tuesday, January 10, 2017

The fierce winds along the Front Range have relaxed in most areas during the night, but this afternoon and evening may see a re-strengthening of chinook winds in local areas in and along the foothills. Many locations will probably see at least a period of gusts over 30 mph and a few local areas may see gusts over 70 mph. On Wednesday the tendency for strong winds will be decreasing, and a cold front may slip into the area by evening. Thursday and Friday are expected to be colder, with just a small chance for snow Thursday.


The bounty of snowfall in the mountains continues, along with some rain and even freezing rain in some western valleys. Snow and wind should continue to make difficult travel conditions at the high passes into Wednesday, and intervals of mountain snow may continue through the week.
