Weather story for the next 24-36 hours will be high winds locally. Upper level low currently over southwest ID will move east into the Northern Plains on Saturday. As associated cold front passes across CO during the day today, snow will be prevalent in mountain areas and foothill areas may see a brief period of snow between 3 pm and 7 pm with less than an inch of accumulation for most areas. Mountain areas will see from 6 to 18 inches from today into Saturday, with heaviest amounts across the southwest mountains. After cold frontal passage today, very strong westerly winds will form east of the Divide into foothill areas and persist through Saturday afternoon. NWS has issued a High Wind Warning for winds of 25-50 mph with gusts to 80 mph possible. With fresh snow on the ground, this will cause blowing and drifting of snow which could impact some roads with ground blizzards, such as US 285 through South Park and CO 93 between Golden and Boulder. Temps will be slightly below average today locally, and then be well below average on Saturday with Wind Chill Values below zero.

On Sunday, winds relax and temps will warm yet still remain below average with no precip expected statewide.

For next week, upper level ridge build over CO Monday into Tuesday which will keep dry conditions across the state and temps should warm to near average. On Wednesday a weak upper level trough will move across the state and bring a chance for light snow to mountain areas west of the Divide, but eastern CO should remain dry with temps near average. Late next week upper ridge returns which should keep conditions dry and temps near average.

For next weekend, precip will be possible from late Saturday into Sunday as Pacific moisture moves into the state. Temps will be near average Saturday then below average Sunday.
