A windy cold front passes through southern Colorado on Friday morning.

At Colorado Springs Airport, gusts reached 51 mph. As the front continues to accelerate south, gusts reach 40-55 mph throughout the morning.

By noon the wind will settle down and this afternoon will be a refreshing one. Thanks to this front, temperatures will be cool all the way through the 1960s and 70s!

You can feel the taste of autumn a little. Expect highs of 74 in Colorado Springs, 77 in Pueblo, 76 in Canon City and 70 in Woodland Park.

The warmest air is inside the mountains because the cold front is too shallow to cross the hills.

The skies on Friday are generally sunny and this front does not rain, but the humidity rises a bit, which can reduce the threat of wildfires a bit.

Still, it’s so windy and the grass is dry that any fire that begins spreads rapidly. Expect a return of heat in the sunny 80’s and 90’s on Saturday’s plains for the weekend.

Sunday is a refreshing day and is about 5 degrees cooler than Saturday. Overall, it will be a fun late summer weekend.

There will be big changes next week. The cold front, which was first warned this week, appears to move on Monday afternoon, with strong winds and afternoon rain. Some of the rain turns into snow overnight, probably with a snowline of 9,000. Feet.

This makes Tuesday much cooler in the 1960s and 70s and makes you feel like autumn.
