Powerful wind storm on Saturday for Southern Colorado

It will be extremely windy over Southern Colorado today, with a High Wind Warning in effect until 8 pm. Gusts in the Plains could top 65 mph, while gusts in the mountains could exceed 80 mph. The same storm responsible for the strong wind will also bring snow to the mountains. Since we won't see any snow east of the mountains, the threat of high fire danger has also prompted Red Flag Warnings for some areas from 11 am to 5 pm.
