Friday afternoon will be windy but warm ahead of cold air that will flow across Colorado and drop temperatures significantly Saturday

Eastern Plains

Friday afternoon will be breezy across the eastern half of the state, with west winds in the 15 to 30 mile per hour range. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s to low 80s under mostly sunny skies, while the lower Arkansas valley will see mid-80s.

Overnight Friday, a cold front slips into the state. Though no precipitation is expected, Saturday's temperatures will be 20 to 25 degrees cooler than Friday.

Highs will rebound Sunday, reaching the upper 60s to low 70s, and pick up another few degree Monday.

West Slope

A wind advisory is in effect for northwest Colorado until 8:00 p.m. Friday. Winds will be out of the southwest at 20 to 30 miles per hour, with gusts between 45 and 50 mph - potentially reaching 60 mph over Douglas Pass. Rain will be possible overnight which may turn to snow further north.

Friday's highs will be in the upper 60s to low 70s before falling to the 40s and 50s Saturday as cooler air moves into the area Friday night into the early hours of Saturday morning.

Temperatures will jump 10 to 15 degrees Sunday to the upper 50s to low 60s, and remain in that range for most of the west through the middle of the week.

Overnight lows for the coming days will range from the mid-20s to mid-30s.
