.SHORT TERM...Tonight and Tomorrow...

A very weak SFC low and boundary over the area will drift east and
wash out through the aftn. This will leave weak winds across the
area which will turn clockwise slowly back around to a SW direction
for all areas by morning. Downsloping SW winds will increase to 10-
15 kts as SFC low pressure deepens once again across SE CO in
response to approaching positively tilted upr level trough and WSW
ENE oriented jet streak on it`s SE side. May see some jet cirrus
across the south, otherwise should be mostly sunny for the area.
This will all lead to very large diurnal ranges and an unusually
warm day on Monday with highs in the 80s (some 10-15 degrees above
normal).

.LONG TERM...Tomorrow Night through Saturday Night...

A very weak SFC low and boundary over the area will drift east and
wash out through the aftn. This will leave a weak winds across the
area which will turn clockwise slowly back around to a SW direction

15 kts as SFC low pressure deepens once again across SE CO in
response to approaching positively tilted upr level trough and WSW
ENE oriented jet streak on it`s SE side. May see some jet cirrus

No aviation concerns through tomorrow as dry/VFR conditions
