There will be no reason to blow dry your hair after a shower this morning, as those strong winds will slick things back, dry you out and give you a nice Albert Einstein hairdo. A cold front is moving through our area early this morning bringing snow and strong winds. The surface cold front will move through our area today with cooler temperatures, as winds become westerly and fuel orographic snow showers in the mountains to our west today. A low pressure to our northeast will wrap moister back into Colorado and bring us continued snow showers this evening and into early Monday. Wind speeds will also stay elevated during this period. Skys will begin clearing Monday as drier air moves in on westerly flow. For the most part we’ll see relatively dry conditions next week, other than a disturbance that looks to impact Northern Colorado mid-week.
