.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 338 AM MDT Tue Oct 10 2017

Currently...clearing conditions have spread from west to east across
Southern Colorado early this morning.  Any light snow along the
Kansas border should dissipate and clear to the east by sunrise.
Temperatures have fallen into the upper 20s across much of the
region, while areas out over the far Eastern Plains are in the lower
30s.  A few degrees of cooling are expected through sunrise.

Today and tonight...the upper level low over western Kansas will
continue east into the Missouri Valley.  Shortwave ridging is
forecast to build and move across southern Colorado through this
evening.  This will lead to dry conditions for the region.
Temperatures will be cool with highs in the 50s for most of the
lower elevations.  For tonight, flow aloft will transition
southwesterly.  This will help keep dry weather across the region
through tonight.  The westerly flow should also help keep
temperatures a bit warmer through Wednesday morning, with lows in
the mid 30s. Mozley

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday through Monday)

With an upper level trof over the western states Wed through Fri,
dry southwest flow is expected over southeast and south central CO.
High temps on Wed are expected to be around average for the high
valley locations and a little above average across the southeast
plains.  Temps on Thu should be a little above average in the high
valleys, and about 10 deg above average across the southeast plains.
A cold front moves thru southeast CO early Fri and will lead to
cooler temps on Fri as low level easterly upslope flow develops in
the afternoon.  At this time, it looks like an increase in low level
mstr Fri night/Sat morning, would lead to low clouds developing over
portions of the southeast plains, mainly from about highway 50 and
northward.

On Sat an upper level trof will quickly move across CO, but at this
time it looks like The weather will be dry across southeast and
south central CO, but temps will be cooler, especially over the
southeast plains where temps are expected to be about 5-10 degrees
below average.  On Sunday a weak upper level disturbance is forecast
to move across CO, but this system also looks dry.  Temps will
probably be slightly cooler than on Sat.  Dry westerly flow aloft is
expected on Mon, with temps likely being slightly warmer than on
Sun.
