Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Colorado and Ern Utah
National Weather Service Grand Junction CO
300 PM MDT Wed Apr 25 2018

.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will sustain dry and mild
conditions across the region tonight and Thursday. There is a
low chance that showers/thunderstorms could develop over the San
Juan Mountains Friday afternoon. However, chances are much better
Saturday as a low pressure system moves over the Pacific Northwest
drawing subtropical moisture northward. Sunday brings a downturn
in activity as the low moves over the northwest Intermountain
region. Latest model guidance indicates an unsettled and cooler
start to the coming week as a broad trough develops over the Great
Basin.

...GUSTY ERRATIC WINDS CAN BE EXPECTED NEAR ANY SHOWERS
OR THUNDERSTORMS...
