.DISCUSSION...A weather disturbance will brush the region this
afternoon. Most of the immediate impacts will be along and east
of the Continental Divide, with the burn area only experiencing a
few clouds. Otherwise, nearly identical conditions are expected
relative to Tuesday in the afternoon. Winds this afternoon will
be typical daily breezes similar to Tuesday with high variability
around terrain. One thing the disturbance may do is push a weak
backdoor cool front through the area this evening, which means a
shift to relatively light northeast winds overnight. Thus, winds
may not become completely calm overnight as was experienced in
recent nights.
