.Discussion...

There may be active weather through the weekend with a couple
of different systems moving across the area.  These will
produce some moderate snowfall for the mountains.  By Monday,
gusty winds ahead of next upper system will strengthen over
the Plains and San Luis Valley.  Beyond Wednesday, the upper
pattern begins to dissolve, with active weather remaining
possible.

Very good to excellent smoke dispersal is expected for tomorrow.

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