Windy Friday, dry Saturday-Monday

6:20 AM MST, Thursday, January 16, 2020

A strong Pacific cold front on Friday is likely to bring strong west and northwest winds. Near and west of the continental divide there will likely be 4-8″ of snow in mountain areas, with blowing snow at the high passes.

For the eastern foothills and plains it should be mainly dry, but gusty winds are likely Friday, especially afternoon and evening. Some gusts will probably be greater than 60 mph near the foothills. Although it should be mainly dry, some areas of precipitation may survive the trip into eastern Colorado before drying out. So some localized squalls of rain or snow are possible, but with little accumulation.

 

The weekend is expected to be dry, starting out cool , but ending mild. The next chance of snow for eastern Colorado may come around the middle of next week.
