HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD OVER THE REGION INTO THE EARLY WEEKEND
BRINGING CLEAR SKIES...DRY CONDITIONS...LIGHT WINDS AND WARMING
DAY TIME TEMPERATURES. LIGHT WINDS WILL CONTRIBUTE TO A HIGHER
PERCENTAGE OF POOR TO FAIR VENTILATION CATEGORIES. HIGH PRESSURE
WILL GIVE WAY TO A FAST MOVING LOW PRESSURE TROUGH MOVING INTO THE
CENTRAL ROCKIES ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY WHICH IN TURN WILL PRODUCE
BREEZY TO WINDY CONDITIONS ESPECIALLY SUNDAY AND MONDAY AFTERNOONS.
COOLER TEMPERATURES (ABOUT 5 DEGREES F) WILL RETURN ON TUESDAY AND
DRY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE FOR THE REMAINDER OF NEXT WEEK. THE
MIN RH FIELD WILL RUN FROM 35% TO 45% ALL AREAS THURSDAY DROPPING
