KUSA - Wind gusts early Friday morning were clocked at 70 and 80 mph for parts of Boulder and Larimer County. Winds are expected to decrease Friday evening.
As another blast of cool air makes its way to Colorado, it will bring strong winds and snow. The snow will develop in the mountains and high valleys tonight through Saturday evening with accumulations of less than 4 inches.
No travel advisories have been issued for those headed to the mountains, but blowing snow is possible. The strong winds will also cause a considerable risk for avalanches through Saturday.
Snow is likely for the northern portions of the plains late Saturday with little to no accumulation. High temperatures for Saturday will be slightly cooler than Friday reaching the upper 40s.
Dry and warmer conditions are in store for Sunday with highs in the low 50s. Strong winds will return early Monday morning with Foothills gusts reaching up to 70mph. The colder air and snow arrives Monday night and temperatures will be below normal for the middle of the week with highs in the 20s and 30s.
