DENVER -- Wind is the biggest weather impact coming to the city this workweek, and it will be especially strong on Wednesday.

Although Denver isn't currently in an official alert for wind, many other cities are, including Fort Collins and Greeley:

The wind will ramp up throughout the morning and will be at its strongest through the mid-afternoon Wednesday. The wind does try to bring in cooler temperatures, but in most cases, we are still going to feel 50 degrees and warmer for highs, which isn't much of a cool off from Monday and Tuesday's middle to upper 50s.

The wind does blow in some snow, but only in the high country. The slopes may pick up 5 to 10 inches, but totals that high won't cover very many areas. Here are some possible totals by the time the system clears early Thursday:

Thursday and Friday return to calmer conditions with highs in the 50s Thursday before temperatures jump into the 60s Friday.

The end of the workweek is quite calm before another system grazes the state this weekend, and with that, there is a slight chance of snow on the Front Range Saturday. The chance for the metro area to see snow is 30 percent at this time, and temperatures will cool into the lower 40s with the clouds that will be brushing over the state.

With temperatures near 50 for Sunday, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, it isn't likely to be a white Christmas in the Urban Corridor.

Historically, most of the Front Range cities don't have white Christmases:
