Very windy Wednesday ahead, cooler temps, chance for precipitation

Wednesday, December 15th, 2021 5:05am MDT

Today we see temps cool down to near normal and might see just a little bit of rain or snow. Most notable however will be the wind that will have the potential to be damaging.

Mostly cloudy skies start us off and we will have just a chance to see some drops or rain, perhaps a few snowflakes until about 10:00am. Unfortunately, any precipitation is not expected to amount to much. Cloud cover will begin to ease after 10:00am. Temps today will top out in the mid-40s, right near average.

Most notable will be strong winds that will begin to develop after sunrise and peak around noon. They will then slowly taper off in the afternoon. The potential is there for winds of 40+ mph with gusts exceeding 60 mph. Those speeds that may cause damage and result in power outages, downed trees and fences, overturned vehicles, etc. Extreme caution is advised.

Additionally, with the wind and low humidity, fire danger will be elevated. A High Wind Warning and Red Flag Warning are in effect from 8:00am to 5:00pm. You can read the full text of the warnings here.

Tonight, it will remain breezy until midnight. Mostly clear skies will then be seen with overnight lows around 20 degrees.
