Winds will be gusty during the afternoon and evening for much of the state, coming in from the west up to 30-40 mph. Red flag warnings will be in effect starting at noon. As the next system moves closer to southern Colorado and New Mexico, some spotty rain showers will develop around the Four Corners area this evening through tonight. The system will move over the state on Friday, cooling temperatures slightly, keeping more clouds around, and creating enough lift to have some mountain showers, and low elevation virga.
