717 PM MDT Wed Aug 16 2017

.Discussion...

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms will be possible each day
with thunderstorms becoming more tied to the mountains into
the weekend.  Another upswing in precipitation will come early
week as the monsoon makes another surge northward into the
region.

Very good to excellent afternoon smoke dispersion rates will
return to the district for Thursday afternoon with lower
dispersion rates a category lower for Friday.

--- thunderstorms imply strong gusty and erratic winds ---
