.DISCUSSION...
A broad upper trough will extend from the Great Basin into the
Rocky Mountain areas through tonight. The best dynamics are
expected to remain south of the burn unit. Only flurries are
possible today with no accumulation. The biggest concern will be
the gusty Northwest winds expected over the area into this evening
as a strong pressure gradient sets up across the area. A brief
upper ridge moves over the Pacific Northwest Friday with another
trough digging and sliding through the region for the weekend bringing
snow showers to the burn area.
