Discussion:

Light southwesterly winds this morning, with a mix of clear skies and occasional high thin clouds.  The winds are still forecast to pick up somewhere between 2 and 5 pm, and remain elevated through the night.   Speeds at 11,000' could average 30-35 mph, with gusts to 60.  9,000' to 10,000' elevation wind speeds will peak at 20 to 25 mph, with gusts to 35. 

Tomorrow, snow on a southwesterly flow, with frontal passage mid day, and winds switching to the northwest and decreasing. Including snow showers through Tuesday, an 8 to 14 inch storm total still looks reasonable.  Cold temperatures through Wednesday.

Extended Outlook:

High pressure will move in with significant warming Thursday and Friday.  The models diverge more than a little for the weekend, so no consensus on the longer range weather forecast.
