Wind gusts to 83 mph Monday, calmer but cooler day Tuesday

DENVER -- Wind creating issues around the state Monday, from disruption to a Southwest Airlines flight to whiteout conditions in the mountains.

Through 3:30 pm: the strongest wind in the metro area has been between Golden and Boulder with an 83 mph gust and Berthoud Pass measured a 75 mph wind gust.

Here is a map showing the peak wind gusts as of 2 pm Monday.

The wind in the high country has caused travel issues due to blowing snow and reduced visibility. Plus, some ski areas had to close certain lifts due to the conditions.

The high wind warning continues for northern Colorado through late Monday evening, although the trend will be for the wind to decrease through Tuesday morning.

As things calm overnight, there will be a touch of cooler air to move in but we aren't expecting much by way of major change through the week as you can see on our latest weekly planner:
