Mild temperatures coupled with breezy winds start Denver’s workweek

Unseasonably warm weather will be the main feature of the first half of the Mile High City’s workweek but as is common this time of year, wind will be another factor. Later in the week temperatures get colder and we see a chance for snow.

For President’s Day we saw some strong overnight winds. Those have subsided this morning but we will see breezy winds throughout the day. Gusts to 25 mph will be possible in the Denver metro area with higher speeds in the foothills and high country.

The downslope winds will help to bring high temperatures in the low 60s in town. Upper 50s will be seen on the eastern plains and upper 30s / lower 40s in the mountains.

This evening and overnight the strong winds will be returning. A High Wind Watch goes into effect at 8:00 p.m. for the Front Range foothills and mountains and runs through 8:00 a.m. Tuesday. Gusts to 80 mph will be possible along the high mountain passes and the foothills. Here in town gusts to 40 mph seem likely.

Looking ahead, Tuesday and Wednesday should remain quite mild with high temperatures in the upper 50s and near 60 degrees in Denver. Gusty winds will be possible over the two days.

Wednesday night a storm system looks to move in bringing a chance for precipitation across much of the area. The mountains will see snow while at lower elevations it looks like rain initially changing to snow overnight.

Seasonal temperatures in the mid-40s are expected Thursday and Friday.

For the weekend ahead a weak system brings a slight chance for snow Saturday and Saturday night. Highs on Saturday look to be around 40 degrees followed by the mid-40s Sunday.
