Biking, kite-flying, disc golf, carrying tri-fold foamcore science fair project displays -- all bad ideas on Tuesday, folks. It's gonna be windy in Denver, according to the National Weather Service.

There's a high wind watch in effect starting at 9 a.m., and they're expecting winds of 25 to 35 mph, with gusts up to 60 mph possible:

"Gusty winds will blow around unsecured objects and a few power outages may result. Strong winds will likely lead to rapid fire growth of any new fire."

That's on top of a fire weather watch issued for Denver and much of the Front Range due to wind and low relative humidity.

So pencil these into your Tuesday to-do list:

-  Secure your objects

-  If you need to report a power outage to Xcel, you can do it here

- Check your flight status

-  Move your car? Street sweeping started again

- Maybe do a science fair project inside

Other than that, the high is expected to be 62, the low around 30, with a bit of blustery, rainy weather possible in the evening.

You power Denverite!
