A storm system moving over the central Rockies will bring strong west to northwest winds to the area on Friday. Peak winds during the early and late afternoon of 40 to 50 mph will be common, with a few isolated higher gusts possible, especially over areas just east of mountain ranges (examples: Northeast El Paso, WSMR HQ). There's also a slight chance of brief snow showers in the Sacramento Mountains. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny, and temperatures will still be on the mild side, but a cold front will bring cooler temperatures (but lighter winds) for Saturday.
