DENVER -- Monday was a beauty, with a high in the lower 70s and light wind. The wind will increase overnight through Tuesday.

Wind gusts had increased late Monday for the western half of the state and will go up Tuesday for the rest of Colorado. It will be a breezy and gusty Tuesday in Denver with wind gusts of 35 mph and higher.

This stronger wind is bringing in colder air that will drop temperatures to the upper 50s and lower 60s for Tuesday and Wednesday.

With this, there will be snow in the mountains and a very slight chance of rain for the metro area.

For now, the biggest impact will be wind. Friday and Saturday will be travel issues from rain and snow.

A strong system has its sight set on Colorado to end the week and start the weekend.

This is also Severe Weather Awareness Week.
