National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
540 AM MDT Wed Oct 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...Today and tonight...A weak weather system will bring
some clouds, a shift to easterly winds, and slight cooling and
moistening to the eastern Colorado plains today. There is also a
bit of enhanced west wind over the Front Range this morning, that
will diminish a bit by afternoon. There will be little change
today in areas west of the Front Range.

LONG TERM DISCUSSION...Thursday through Sunday...
A couple of weak upper troughs will moves across the forecast
area; the first one Thursday and Thursday night, the other Friday
night into Saturday. The first system will produce little if any
precipitation in the mountains. The second will be colder with a
chance snow showers mountains and a slight chance to the eastern
plains. Temperatures will be well above normal Thursday and
Friday, much cooler on Saturday, then back above normal Sunday and
Monday.
