National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
334 PM MDT Thu Aug 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...Tonight and Friday...West-northwesterly flow aloft will
continue over the forecast area tonight and Friday.  The airmass over
the area has dried out somewhat and will continue to do so on Friday.
A slight chance of precipitation will be be continued to the mountains
and foothills south of I-70 and Park county on Friday.

LONG TERM DISCUSSION...Friday night through Tuesday...The best
chances for convection over the weekend will be over the higher
terrain. Temperatures will increase into the lower 90s with
winds staying light. Moisture levels will increase for the start of
next week with better chances for storms over the higher terrain and
eastern plains starting Monday. Winds will pick up on the plains by
mid week but concerns remain low as these should be accompanied by
some showers and thunderstorms.

       ...Thunderstorms imply strong gusty erratic winds...
  ...All surface winds are 20-Foot...10-Minute averaged winds...
  ...CWR is Chance of Wetting Rain - 0.10 inch or more liquid...
  ...24 HR Trends are based on averages over the respective zone
        groups and may not match the actual forecast values
