Clouds will be increasing today along with gusty winds as our next system begins to move in from the Pacific Northwest.
Winds will gust up to 70 mph by this afternoon along the Rocky Mountain Front where a High Wind Warning is in effect.
Across the plains, winds could gust up to 35 mph at times.
These winds will allow for some mild temperatures with most places climbing into the 40s.
The storm system currently developing across the Pacific Northwest will move through late Wednesday into Thursday morning bringing scattered rain and snow showers and cooler temperatures.
Gusty winds will spread eastward onto the plains Wednesday morning before the rain and snow arrive and High Wind Watches have now been issued for this area.
Colder behind the system on Thursday with highs dropping into the lower 30s.
Warming back up again with sunshine to finish out the work week.
Temperatures will be back in the 40s on Friday, climbing close to 50 by Saturday.
Have a great day!
