in the mountains (above 7500 feet). Backdoor cold front will bring
gusty winds to some areas late tonight and Tuesday, but
temperatures will drop to around 4 to 8 degrees below normal for
Tuesday afternoon, before slowly recovering Wednesday and
Thursday. A stronger backdoor cold front will bring much cooler
temperatures to the area by Friday.
