Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Colorado and Ern Utah
National Weather Service Grand Junction CO
437 AM MDT Mon Oct 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A few showers are possible this morning over the northern
mountains but minimal coverage is expected. Clouds associated with
these showers will move out by the noon timeframe. Most areas
will see plenty of sunshine as temperatures become a few degrees
warmer than seen yesterday. Enough mixing looks to occur to allow
fair and above smoke dispersal for most of the week. The next
system to bring any chance of precipitation will looks to be
Thursday into Friday though some models are much drier than
others.

...GUSTY ERRATIC WINDS CAN BE EXPECTED NEAR ANY SHOWERS
OR THUNDERSTORMS...
