DENVER -- It will be mild and breezy on the Front Range on Wednesday.

High temperatures will reach the upper 50s in Denver with dry conditions. Fire danger will be elevated because of the low humidity and breezy winds.

While the lower elevations are dry and breezy, the mountains will see strong winds and snow.

A winter storm watch is in place starting Wednesday night through Friday morning and parts of the mountains are also under high wind warnings and watches.

Winds could gust up to 80 mph out of the west in the mountains and foothills on Wednesday.
