Temperatures along the Colorado Front Range will be cooler today but conditions will be relatively calm. By contrast, the state’s eastern plains are going to be raked by strong winds that could create hazardous travel conditions.

Here in the Denver area we will enjoy mostly sunny but temperatures will be a bit cooler as a cold front pushes into the northeastern corner of the state. Highs in town will be in the upper 40s. Winds here should be relatively calm, even in the foothills.

The cold front that will be arriving is going to bring strong winds to the plains, particularly the northeastern corner of the state. Gusts to 60 mph will be possible in the affected areas creating not only a wind hazard but also bringing the potential for blowing dust.

Travel along I-70 and I-76 through the eastern part of the state. A High Wind Warning is in effect for these areas of Colorado until 6:00 p.m. this evening.

To the east and northeast, High Wind Warnings are in effect for northwestern Kansas and virtually all of Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota.

Looking ahead the Mile High City is going to enjoy a very nice three day period from Friday through the weekend. Temperatures will be in the 50s, possibly touching 60 on Sunday.
