5:49 pm
it is windy and dry there too and you go into southern colorado in monument hill, trinidad. i-25 under a red flag warning but i would say all across colorado. we have wind, we have dryness going on. so, wherever you are, we have to be careful. at least for the next few hours. but we are just not going to see much relief the next several days. wind in loveland 12. not as strong as it was earlier, but just to give you an idea of how much it was blowing, greg burrman had a top gust of 75 miles an hour. that is hurricane force wind. earlier today. three big major things we are working on. a lee side trough. a trough of low pressure east of the continental divide. high pressure over arizona bringing in a southwesterly wind. so, that is kicking up some wind. at the same time, there is a cold front coming in from utah
5:50 pm
that is squeezing the pressure gradient. so it is all funneling into colorado. now once this front goes through which will happen between 10:00 p.m. and midnight tonight, the winds will relax. humidities will increase. we will see a little mountain snow. and tonight's temperatures will be cooler. that will loiter fire danger. not as good as getting some rain and snow, but lit be better tomorrow. with the wind today, it really kicked up the temperature, we were one degree away from the record high at 72. old record was set in 2006 at 73. so, almost felt like an early taste of summer there for you. debbie bidwell in fort collins has 63 right now. beautiful afternoon going on. phil curry lives in frank town. he has 62. his little message today, his calendar must be wrong. 70 degrees on a winter day? it must be colorado right? temperatures, we are looking at 30s for overnight lows tonight on the eastern plains. 20s and teens in the mountains and the western slope. tomorrow, we will be above
5:51 pm
though a shade cooler. mostly 60s and 50s out east. and a lot of 40s in the mountains. my forecast tonight, partly cloudy. breezy. 37 downtown. 35 at the airport. tomorrow, near 60. it will be mostly sunny early. a little breezy time to time. 60 on monday. but monday, we have another shot of moisture coming in. it will create some wind for us. and give us some mountain snow. but only wind here unfortunately. not much moisture. on wednesday, we have another shot coming in. maybe some isolated showers to soak things down a little bit. but nothing really big to get rid of this fire danger that is looming. march is typically our snowiest month so we are hoping el nio and march get the plan together and come through with some moisture by then. >> we have our fingers crossed. >> thanks dave. a one-year-old boy in colorado almost died after swallowing something just the size of a nickel. britt moreno reports, the
