Gusty & dusty early tonight

Extended: A mostly dry and windy forecast with dust followed by some cooling is a quick and handy reference to this week's weather. A Freeze Watch is in effect from Thursday night through Friday morning for the areas listed in the text below.

Winds will be the issue (15-40 mph) tonight and tomorrow, a light break Friday with a return to (just) the breezy conditions Saturday and Sunday. A lingering front is keeping things active and blowing dust will be a concern this evening and again Thursday, especially east of construction and agricultural sites. This system has been mostly dry and has slowly lowered the temperatures each afternoon by almost ten degrees since Monday. The coldest air will settle in behind this system for a Freeze Watch Friday and Saturday morning. This will include the Grand Valley and areas along EB HWY 50: Delta, Montrose and Hotchkiss. Nucla and Moab are also included in this chilly reminder. The mountain zones/elevated sites have been the most active and that trend will continue Thursday with pop and drop showers. The rain showers will spread over adjacent valleys late Thursday, so the bigger cities get, but still remain with only slight rain opportunities. Clearer weather is expected Friday, Saturday and Easter, but an afternoon breeze will return for the late weekend/holiday and temperatures will get warmer.
