Wind a big issue Wednesday

DENVER -- Winds topped 82 mph Tuesday evening on Berthoud Pass and gusts like that might be measured in a number of areas overnight and during the day Wednesday.

Denver will feel the wind increase overnight, but the windiest period will likely be through the afternoon.

Those closer to the mountains such as Boulder and Castle Rock will have strong wind gusts overnight and throughout the day Wednesday.

With the wind will be a warmup into the 70s for much of the metro area, but considering the strength of the wind, it might not feel as warm as the numbers will indicate.

Lighter wind will return for most areas on Thursday and Friday.
