DISCUSSION
 
 
A DISTURBANCE MOVING THROUGH THE REGION WILL CONTRIBUTE TO GUSTY  
WINDS THIS AFTERNOON. AN ISOLATED SNOW SHOWER IS NOT OUT THE  
QUESTION. HOWEVER, THIS ACTIVITY IS EXPECTED TO REMAIN IN THE  
HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE SAN JUANS TODAY. WITH SLIGHTLY STRONGER  
THAN NORMAL OVERNIGHT WINDS AND COOL AIR TONIGHT, WIND CHILLS WILL  
DIP TO NEAR ZERO AROUND THE SPOT. ALTHOUGH CHANCES REMAIN LOW  
AGAIN ON SUNDAY, A SNOW SHOWER OR TWO COULD AFFECT THE SOUTHERN  
FOOT HILLS. AT ANY RATE, SNOW ACCUMULATION IS HIGHLY UNLIKELY AT  
OR BELOW 9000 FEET.
