152 AM MST Sun Nov 19 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Sunday)
Issued at 315 PM MST Sat Nov 18 2017

Surface high pressure moves into the southern high plains with a lee
trough deepening along the Front Range during the day on Sunday. The
upper ridge over the Rockies moves east over the plains early Sunday
with a weak short wave moving through the upper flow across the high
plains by Sunday evening.  With near surface flow turning to a more
west southwesterly downslope direction and the upper ridge moving
east of the Rockies, a dry and warmer short term period is expected.
Highs will warm to around 60 on Sunday with RH values dipping into
the teens across mainly eastern Colorado.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday through Sunday)
Issued at 152 AM MST Sun Nov 19 2017

Dry conditions are expected through out the entire extended period
as an upper level ridge over the Rockies dominates the region. Highs
for the rest of the work week (Wed-Fri) will reach into the middle
to upper 60s, with some local area reaching around 70 by Friday.

Friday night, the upper level ridge will flatten enough to allow
troughing to move down through the Tri-State region. This troughing
will have an associated front with it. This front looks to be dry;
however, temperatures will be impacted over the weekend. Expect
afternoon high temperatures to reach only into the lower to middle
