Friday wind storm could impact travel, power outages


A wind storm across much of Colorado Friday could cause some power outages and affect driving conditions through the afternoon.

Denver will get some of the lightest winds compared to the rest of the state; drivers are advised to avoid mountain and foothills travel if possible due to wind gusts reaching up to 75 mph in some areas.

The strongest winds so far have been along and south of Interstate 70.

The high in Denver Friday is 52 degrees, and the city will reach that by 11 a.m. before a cold front drops the temperature to about 39 degrees the rest of the day.

The cold front is bringing snow to the mountains, which will also affect driving conditions. One to six inches is expected across most of the high country, but the Rabbit Ears Pass and Park Range areas could see 10 to 12 inches of snow.
