Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Colorado
National Weather Service Grand Junction CO
304 PM MDT Mon Apr 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...A series of storms will impact eastern Utah and
western Colorado through much of the work week resulting in
extended periods of cooler and then wetter conditions.
Southwesterly flow will increase ahead of each storm but excessive
cloud cover should be enough to keep humidities above critical
fire weather thresholds.

...GUSTY ERRATIC WINDS CAN BE EXPECTED NEAR ANY SHOWERS
OR THUNDERSTORMS...
...THE SMOKE DATA IS CALCULATED FROM AN AVERAGE AT 6000 FEET MSL...
