High winds again driving a fire and ice weather pattern

DENVER -- Expect another windy day across Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins and the eastern Plains on Monday.

There will be widespread gusts of 20-50 mph -- with up to 60 mph on the northeast Plains -- through Monday afternoon under dry and sunny conditions.

The result will be extremely high fire danger even with high temperatures in the low 40s.

A red flag warning is in effect for Denver and the Front Range until 6 p.m. with a high wind warning in place for northern Colorado and the eastern plains.

The central and Northern Mountains can expect lingering snow showers, with 1-3 inches of additional accumulation. Highs will only be in the teens.

On Tuesday, there will be overall less wind, but it will still be gusty, especially over the northeastern Plains where gusts might top 50 mph.

This includes the Interstate 76 corridor such as Fort Morgan, Sterling, Haxtun and Akron.

The mountain snow dries up by midday Tuesday. Across the Front Range, expect dry, sunny conditions with highs in the 40s.

There will be less wind overall, but still gusty and unpleasant at times.

High temperatures in the 60s return for Thursday and Friday with plenty of sunshine.

A storm system crosses Colorado between Friday and Saturday. There is a chance of mountain snow and a small chance of precipitation in Denver.

Highs will fall into the 40s on Saturday. Sunday looks dry.
