Windy Sunday-Monday

9:20 AM MST, Sunday, January 6, 2019

My forecast from yesterday morning hasn’t changed except that the chance for some strong gusty west-northwest wind has increased for the Front Range region and adjacent plains. Today through Monday are likely to see some gusty downslope winds, especially in and along the foothills. The best chance for gusts exceeding 60 mph is on Monday.


Other than that, you should still expect some snowy stretches in the mountains and western Colorado today. There may be a lull tonight and then some additional intervals of snow at the high elevations on Monday. Totals of 6-10 inches are likely at some of the high passes, much less in the valleys.

The Front Range foothills and plains should stay dry with some cloudy intervals and gusty winds. Some sprinkles or flurries will make it as far east as the foothills before evaporating. Despite slightly cooler weather, lower elevations are still likely to reach 50 degrees, which is above average for January.
