AREAS RAIN AND SNOW WILL DECREASE TODAY AS THE PACIFIC STORM

LIGHT AND LESS THAN 2 INCHES. CLOUDY SKIES WILL PREVAIL MOST OF

PATCHY FOG AND FROST WILL BE POSSIBLE...MAINLY IN LOW LYING AREAS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

THE COOL AND MOIST CONDITIONS YESTERDAY AND TODAY WILL MODERATE
ON TUESDAY AS THE STRONG UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TO OUR

HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE TO BUILD IN FROM THE WEST BRINGING WARMER AND
DRIER CONDITIONS TO THE REGION FOR WEDNESDAY. EVEN WARMER
TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED ON THURSDAY WITH THE UPPER RIDGE PASSING
OVER COLORADO. HOWEVER MOISTURE TRAPPED BENEATH THIS RIDGE
TOGETHER WITH STRONG DAYTIME HEATING MAY PRODUCE ISOLATED SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS MAINLY OVER HIGHER ELEVATIONS LATE ON THURSDAY.
THERE WILL BE A BETTER CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS FOR ALL AREAS ON
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY WITH THE PASSAGE OF A COUPLE WEATHER
DISTURBANCES. SUNDAY LOOKS COOLER AND POSSIBLY EVEN WETTER.
