Cooler today with more wind and a passing afternoon shower

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) again today, 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 today, 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 this afternoon with pop and drop showers. The rain showers have a chance to spread over adjacent valleys today 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.
