Denver’s Tuesday to feature more mild temperatures but also more wind

Unseasonably warm temperatures will once again cover all of northeastern Colorado. However wind will also be prevalent and serve to dampen enthusiasm over the mild conditions.

Downslope winds this morning provided a quick jump in temperatures to give us a head start on what will be a warm day. Highs today will once again be topping out in the low 60s in the Denver metro area. Breezy winds will continue through the day with gusts to 35 mph being possible this afternoon.

The Front Range mountains and foothills areas are under a High Wind Warning until 10:00 a.m. Gusts in these areas could hit 80 mph before things calm down a bit up there later this morning.

Out on the far eastern plains, the winds and mild temperatures have dried out the landscape considerably. As a result a Red Flag Warning will be in effect today for Kit Carson, Cheyenne and Yuma counties.

Looking ahead, a relatively weak storm system will be impacting the area by Wednesday afternoon. Its arrival late in the day though will still allow tomorrow to be unseasonably warm.

Assuming the timing of the system doesn’t change, we will stand a chance to see some rain showers by late in the day tomorrow. Overnight as temperatures drop a changeover to snow will occur.

Snowfall accumulations from this system, if any at all here in Denver, will be light. Perhaps up to an inch. Up in the high country accumulations could be a few inches.

Following that storm system, temperatures look to return to more normal levels for this time of year. Denver’s high’s on Thursday will be in the low 40s followed by the mid to upper 40s from Friday through the weekend. There will be another chance for light snow Saturday night and again Monday.
