DENVER -- A new week has come, but it looked like Colorado was still in for more of the same windy weather that we saw to end last week.

High wind warnings were issued for most of the Front Range through 4 p.m. today, with wind readings expected to reach anywhere from 25 to 40 mph.

Gusts as strong as 80 mph were expected along the front range, and Colorado State Troopers even confirmed that guests topped out at 109 mph on U.S. 285 over Kenosha Pass.

Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories were also in effect for the Northern and Central Mountains. Additional snow is expected in those areas to go along with high winds through 5 p.m. Poor visibility and white out conditions were expected along the I-70 corridor due to snow and strong winds.

The winds is expected to become less of a problem on Tuesday, and through the rest of the week. Daytime highs temperatures are expected to stay mild in the high 40s and low 50s. The forecast for the Denver Broncos AFC Championship game this coming Sunday against the Patriots calls for sunny skies, light winds and a kickoff temperature around 50 degrees.
