.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Wednesday night)
Issued at 230 PM MST Tue Feb 20 2018

Weak impulse will move east across the region this evening with
effect limited to some cloudiness as well as a few snow showers
over the higher mtns. Elsewhere mainly clear skies and light winds
along with now cover will allow for another very cold night with
mins below zero again. Wind chills look like they will get to or
below -20F over the northern CWA and the Laramie valley so have
posted a wind chill advy for those areas later tonight into Weds
morning. Quiet day again Weds and warmer but still on the cold
side. Will continue to undercut guidance temps given snow cover.
Not as cold Weds night as the cold arctic high over the plains
slips slowly east.

northeastern Pacific. Disturbances ejecting northeast from this
system will bring widely sctd snow showers to the CWA both
Thursday and Friday. The main trough then moves by Friday night
with dry and cool weather for Saturday. The next shortwave scoots
across sat night into Sunday bringing some more snow showers,
primarily to the mtns. Dry and milder conditions return early
next week as the upper flow turns southwesterly ahead of the next
upper trough.
