will continue in the mountains on Monday with a slight chance of
afternoon showers across the plains. A weather system will affect
the area Tuesday afternoon into early Wednesday. This feature will
bring snow to the mountains and a good chance of showers across the
plains. Thursday will be dry with warmer temperatures.

       ...Thunderstorms imply strong gusty erratic winds...
  ...All surface winds are 20-Foot...10-Minute averaged winds...
