.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Tuesday will be drier with only a slight chance for mountain
showers, mainly during the afternoon and early evening hours.

Increasing winds this afternoon and continued warm and dry
conditions will require a heightened awareness of fire weather
conditions this afternoon and early evening.

Thursday. Much cooler weather will accompany this system. There is
the potential for hazardous winterlike driving conditions over the
high mountain passes.

Friday and Saturday...Precipitation will decrease from west to
east Friday with scattered rain and snow showers ending in the
Colorado mountains. Saturday should be drier but becoming windy.

Sunday and Monday...A Pacific storm system will move through the
area each day bringing the continued potential for more winter
weather and hazardous driving conditions over the mountain passes.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
