COVERED.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

A PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM OVER THE FOUR CORNERS REGION FRIDAY MORNING
WILL MAKE ITS WAY ACROSS COLORADO THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT. PRECIPITATION
WILL CONTINUE THROUGH AT LEAST FRIDAY EVENING...WITH SIGNIFICANT

EARLY NEXT WEEK. TEMPERATURES WILL BE WELL BELOW NORMAL THROUGHOUT
THE PERIOD.
