DISCUSSION
 
 
AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE AND COLD FRONT WILL MOVE THROUGH THE  
DISTRICT TONIGHT AND SATURDAY. THIS DISTURBANCE WILL BRING A PERIOD  
OF SNOW TO THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE TONIGHT, PARTICULARLY FROM THE  
MONARCH PASS AREA NORTHWARD. A FEW SHOWERS COULD ALSO OCCUR OVER  
THE EASTERN MOUNTAINS. OTHERWISE, THE SYSTEM WILL BRING BREEZY AND  
COOLER WEATHER TO THE DISTRICT ON SATURDAY WITH TEMPERATURES FALLING  
BACK 5-10 DEGREES BELOW AVERAGE.  
 
SUNDAY AND MONDAY, DRY AND WARMER WEATHER WILL RETURN WITH TEMPS  
CLIMBING BACK ABOVE AVERAGE. TUESDAY, ANOTHER DRY COLD FRONT COULD  
MOVE THROUGH THE DISTRICT RETURNING TEMPERATURES TO NEAR AVERAGE.  
WEDNESDAY LOOKS WARMER AGAIN. IF CURRENT MODEL RUNS ARE CORRECT, A  
STRONG COLD FRONT COULD BRING MUCH COLDER AIR AND A CHANCE OF SNOW  
TO THE DISTRICT THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.  
 
AFTERNOON VENTILATION RATES WILL GENERALLY BE GOOD TO EXCELLENT  
ACROSS THE DISTRICT ON SATURDAY. ON SUNDAY, RATES WILL DECREASE.  
THEY WILL STILL BE GOOD TO VERY GOOD OVER MOST OF THE MOUNTAIN AREAS  
BUT THE PLAINS WILL DROP BACK TO MOSTLY POOR TO FAIR.
