FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WRN COLORADO  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND JUNCTION CO  
300 PM MDT TUE APR 25 2017  
   
DISCUSSION
 
 
A VERY UNSETTLED PATTERN WILL CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE WEEK AS A  
SERIES OF STORMS IMPACT EASTERN UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO. THIS  
WILL RESULT IN A CONTINUED COOLING AND WETTING TREND WITH NUMEROUS  
SHOWERS AND EVEN A FEW THUNDERSTORMS. THE PERSISTING EXCESSIVE  
CLOUD COVER WILL BE ENOUGH TO KEEP HUMIDITIES ABOVE CRITICAL  
FIRE WEATHER THRESHOLDS.  
 
...GUSTY ERRATIC WINDS CAN BE EXPECTED NEAR ANY SHOWERS  
OR THUNDERSTORMS...   
..THE SMOKE DATA IS CALCULATED FROM AN AVERAGE AT 6000 FEET MSL
