DENVER — The jet stream winds will be strong over Colorado for the next few days, bringing periods of snow to the mountains, a little snow for Denver and cold, gusty winds to most of the state.

The winds will be the biggest impact along the Front Range. Winds will gust up 30-50 mph along the foothills and driving conditions in the mountains and foothills will be difficult. Some blowing dust on the plains will create poor visibility and drivers with high profile vehicles will have to hold tightly to the steering wheel!

Winds will lessen overnight, but another storm system will approach Colorado for Wednesday. More snow will fall in the mountains with 4 to 8 inches possible. Denver and the I-25 Corridor will get a mix of light rain and snow Wednesday, but amounts should be light.

Skies will clear early Thursday, with chilly temperatures, but no bitter cold. Highs on Thursday will be in the 30s in Denver and in the 20s in the mountains with good skiing conditions thanks to the fresh snow.

Friday may again see a little light rain and snow for Denver and a few inches of snow in the mountains - ahead of some warmer weather that will move into the region for the weekend into early next week.
