605 PM MST Wed Feb 21 2018

.Discussion...

A weather system will bring snow to the mountains tonight and Thursday,
with the best chance being tonight through Thursday morning.  The
Continental Divide, especially the San Juan mountains, will see
the highest snow amounts.  Some of the lower elevations will see some
light snow tonight and Thursday morning.  Some light snow could continue
along the mountains of the Continental Divide Thursday night and Friday
morning, but a new weather system will bring increased snow chances to
the mountains Friday afternoon and into Saturday morning.  Another weather
system will bring snow to the Continental Divide on Sunday.

Most locations should have very good to excellent smoke dispersion
Thursday afternoon and again on Friday afternoon.

--- thunderstorms imply strong gusty and erratic winds ---
