DENVER — The winds are fast and furious across Colorado this evening and won't weaken for another 24-hours. Look for 50 to 60mph gusts to continue overnight in the Denver metro area with higher speeds in the foothills.

A High Wind Warning is in effect until midnight and covers the northern Front Range mountains and foothills for gusts near 80mph.

Snow is falling in the mountains and will continue off and off through Tuesday. A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m. Tuesday for the Park and Elkhead mountains and the Flattops for an additional 4 to 8 inches of snow.

The gusty winds will continue to be an issue on Tuesday, with high temperatures in the upper 50s along the Urban Corridor. It won't be quite as windy on Wednesday, and we'll see a bit more sunshine across the state.

Another storm moves into Colorado Thursday, bringing a better chance of showers to the Denver metro area and cooler temperatures in the 50s.

So far, it looks like a pleasant Mother's Day weekend with highs near 70-degrees on Sunday.
