Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Colorado and Ern Utah
National Weather Service Grand Junction CO
300 PM MDT Tue Apr 24 2018

.DISCUSSION...Dry and mild conditions take over at midweek with
less wind expected Wednesday and Thursday beneath a ridge of high
pressure. Shower and thunderstorm chances return as early as
Friday afternoon, but most likely will hold off until Saturday as
a closed low slowly moves from northern California across the
Great Basin this weekend. Sunday is a bit of a toss up as models
continued to show poor agreement in the later periods. Despite
model differences, unsettled weather is likely to linger into
early next week.

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