SEE GUSTY WINDS ON MONDAY AND TUESDAY BUT THEY SHOULD
STAY JUST BELOW CRITICAL LEVELS. ON MONDAY WE WILL SEE MOISTURE
BEGIN TO RETURN TO THE REGION AND BY MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY WE
WILL SEE A CHANCE FOR RAIN SHOWERS AND HIGH ELEVATION SNOW
SHOWERS. WE WILL BE COOLER...BUT DRIER FOR WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.
