Winds will increase late this morning into the afternoon as a stronger jet stream moves in on the southern edge of a upper level trough moving across the northern Rockies states. Expect strongest winds to occur over northwest Colorado and areas along I-70 in west-central Colorado where winds will gust to 45 mph or greater at times.  A wind advisory is in effect for those areas as shown in the map below from 11 am MDT through 9 pm MDT today. Generally winds will be gusting 30 to 40 mph elsewhere.  Much drier conditions are expected across east-central Utah and portions of west-central Colorado including Paradox Valley where critical fire weather conditions will be met. Therefore, a Red Flag Warning is in effect for those areas.  Breezy conditions will continue into Tuesday but will be less windy than Monday.
