.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 337 AM CST Thu Nov 27 2014/

Upper ridge centered over the Intermountain west will build east the
next several days.  This ridge will flatten out with zonal flow
across the county... look for mild wx to continuing through the
weekend with sunny days and clear nights.

In years past have had snow on Thanksgiving day but not this year as
will have very good wx for anyone traveling across the region.  Had
a weak front move through the area yesterday so will start the day
with a light east wind over most of the area but will come around to
the south as a new leeside trough develops.  Highs today will be
near normal and in the 60s.  S/SW wind will be a little stronger on
Friday and may be gusty in the afternoon as pressure gradient
associated with a surface low over CO tightens.  This will result in
noticeably warmer temps on Friday as highs climb it into the 70s.
Saturday and Sunday will have 70s too.  On Monday a cold front blows
through the area bringing a brief return to cooler wx but by Tuesday
temperatures should return to near normal.

The forecast looks dry through next Wednesday.  Models have been
trying to develop some precip in the extended but the next upper
trough now looks to weaken and pass north of the area so not
expecting much.
