.Discussion...

Weather pattern over the district will be mostly dry with
above average temperatures through the week.  A weak
disturbance could bring a few showers to the mountains
by Thursday and Friday.

Saturday, a slightly stronger disturbance will move across the
district.  This system will bring cooler temperatures to most
of the district along with a little better chance of showers.

For today, afternoon ventilation rates will generally be good
or better over the central mountains but poor to fair elsewhere.
On Wednesday, rates will generally be fair to good over plains
east of the I-25 corridor but poor to fair elsewhere.
