After a gorgeous weekend another cold front is projected to slide across the state tonight. Before that happens we will see a nice warm-up this afternoon. Highs will top out in the upper 50's and upper 60's across much of the Western Slope. Winds will be gusty ahead of the cold front becoming very gusty this afternoon. Sustained winds will be racing at 5-15mph with gusts up to 25-35mph. The strongest winds will be in northwestern Colorado.
The cold front moves through early tomorrow morning but rain/snow showers are expected around 8-10am. The risk for west-central valley rain and snow is slim but still possible. With the cold air moving in prior to the showers we could also see some snow mixing into the lower valleys, especially in the northern valleys. Sunny weather follows Wednesday through Friday with cooler temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will be about 10-15° cooler than today. A steady warm up is store from Thursday through Saturday.
