Our stretch of mild, calm weather has continued in Wednesday afternoon.

By the evening, that will likely change.

We're tracking an area of moisture heading our way, bringing the potential of light rain, snow, and even some freezing drizzle Wednesday night.

Little to no accumulating snow is expected at lower elevations, but we will likely see a few inches of accumulation in the mountains.

We return back to sunny and mild conditions on Thursday, with highs in the 30s and 40s.

Looking ahead, we're tracking some even bigger changes.

Strong downslope winds will start up Friday, and very windy conditions are expected by Saturday.

Wind gusts of 50 to 60 miles per hour will be widespread, with gusts as high as 90 miles per hour possible along the Rocky Mountain Front.

The higher winds come with higher temperatures as well.

Many spots will see temperatures in the 50s by Friday, with 60s not out of the question by Saturday!

The really warm air won't be here long, as a cold front will pass through Saturday night or early Sunday.

Temperatures behind the front will fall back into the 30s.
