TIMES.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

EXPECT GUSTY WEST WINDS OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND FRONT RANGE
FOOTHILLS ON THURSDAY MORNING WITH SPEEDS UP TO 50 MPH ALONG WITH

ACROSS COLORADO THURSDAY NIGHT WITH SOME LIGHT SNOW OVER THE
MOUNTAINS AND A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SNOW OVER THE PLAINS. SATURDAY
WILL BE DRY AND WARMER WITH TEMPERATURES RETURNING TO NEAR
SEASONABLE NORMALS.

ANOTHER SYSTEM WILL MOVE OVER COLORADO SATURDAY NIGHT WITH ANOTHER
CHANCE OF SNOW AND GUSTY WINDS SATURDAY NIGHT AND EARLY SUNDAY
