.DISCUSSION...
EXPECT LIGHT NORTH-NORTHEAST WINDS TO DEVELOP BY AROUND NOON-1 PM
MST, BECOMING 5-10 MPH WITH A FEW STRONGER GUSTS THROUGH THE
AFTERNOON. WINDS SHOULD VEER TO A MORE NORTHEASTERLY DIRECTION AND
BECOME EVEN STRONGER THIS EVENING, LIKELY WITHIN AN 8 PM - 11 PM
MST TIME FRAME. THE WEST FACING SLOPE SHOULD ENABLE TERRAIN
EFFECTS TO MAKE NORTHEAST WIND GUSTS LOCALLY STRONG TONIGHT.

THE LARGE RANGES FOR MIN TEMPERATURE AND MAX HUMIDITY TONIGHT ARE
BOTH DUE TO THE ELEVATION RANGE AND DUE TO THE NORTHEAST WINDS
