.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP OVER THE

THESE STORMS WOULD BE HAIL UP TO ONE INCH IN DIAMETER AND WIND
GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 60 MPH.

FURTHER WEST ALONG THE FRONT RANGE...DRIER LOW LEVELS WILL ALLOW
FOR MORE HIGH BASED STORMS WHICH WILL PRODUCE GUSTY WINDS TO 45
MPH WITH JUST SOME LIGHT RAINFALL.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

WEAKER SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. A STRONGER SYSTEM WILL MOVE ACROSS THE
REGION SUNDAY TO LIKELY BRING A PERIOD OF RAIN WITH SNOW OVER THE
HIGHER TERRAIN. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS COULD POSSIBLY BE SIGNIFICANT
SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT IN THE FRONT RANGE MOUNTAINS AND
FOOTHILLS...MAINLY ABOVE 8000 FEET.

MONDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY WILL FEATURE A WARMING AND DRYING TREND.
