UNSEASONABLY COOL TODAY WITH AFTERNOON HIGHS AROUND 15 DEGREES
BELOW NORMAL. HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL THEN MOVE ACROSS THE
SOUTHERN ROCKY MOUNTAINS CAUSING TEMPERATURES TO WARM UP TUESDAY
THROUGH THURSDAY. MOSTLY DRY WEATHER EXPECTED EXCEPT FOR SLIGHT
CHANCES OF THUNDER HIGHER MOUNTAINS TUESDAY AND THURSDAY WITH DRY
LIGHTNING POSSIBLE. LOWEST AFTERNOON HUMIDITY AROUND 15 TO 30
PERCENT LOWLANDS AND 25 TO 50 PERCENT MOUNTAINS TODAY AND
FALLING INTO THE TEENS LOWLANDS AND 20S MOUNTAINS FOR TUESDAY
AND WEDNESDAY. A SLOW MOVING STORM SYSTEM APPROACHING FROM THE WEST
WILL PRODUCE WINDY CONDITIONS FRIDAY WITH WIND GUSTS FROM 40 TO 50
MPH CAUSING CRITICAL CONDITIONS MOST AREAS. COOLER AND
