Temperatures will warm slightly today while cloud cover and winds increase.  A HIGH WIND WARNING for the Rocky Mountain Front will go into effect this afternoon.  Winds will begin to pick up in the late afternoon hours due to a developing lee side trough.  That trough (and the high wind warning) will remain in place through Wednesday night.

While it will be a windy day, we’re going to stay dry.  Precipitation comes back into the picture on Thursday night, beginning as a rain/ snow mix, and transitioning to snow by Friday.  This snowfall will be very widespread but will move out quickly, making way for clear skies on Saturday and Sunday.

Have a great day!
