    next up- WY& NE? .....

    PRECEDING WARM TEMPERATURES
    SHOULD PRECLUDE MUCH IN THE WAY OF SNOW ACCUMULATIONS AWAY FROM
    THE HIGHER TERRAIN BUT FRONTOGENETIC FORCING IN THE 800-600 MB
    LAYER TIED TO THE STRONG BAROCLINIC ZONE DRAPED AGAINST THE
    MOUNTAINS COULD ENHANCE SNOW EARLY ON FRI ACROSS SERN WY INTO THE
    NE PANHANDLE WHERE TEMPS ARE EXPECTED TO BE SUPPORTIVE OF SNOW
    . A
    MODERATE RISK OF 4 INCHES HAS BEEN PLACED HERE BOTH DAY 2 AND
    3...THU THROUGH SAT EVENING...WHICH IS CONSISTENT WITH THE
    MULTI-MODEL CONSENSUS.
    ---------------------


    it is early, but I don't know what else to say from all the fires and drought.
    Hopefully we can get some kind of moisture in the ground
