Good morning everybody, Cory took off to NY this morning and should be back next week. In the mean time I will take over. Just so you all know , the App is finished and both Iphone and droid applications have been sent out for approval. Once they are approved they will be sent to App store. Trust me I can't wait for this thing to hit App stores. Its driving me insane that it has taken this long. The App looks great and I think you will really enjoy the user friendly way it works. We will let you all know when to go download it to your phone. Thanks for you re patience!

Today (Friday)...Updated 615am -
Friday (Updated 615am) - A minor cool front will be moving through the area in the afternoon bringing a mix of sun and clouds with gusty winds at times. Temps will be a few degrees cooler in the upper 70's. Fire danger increasing!!!
So here's the deal. We lack ambient water, so when a few cells possibly form due to upward motion there will likely be evaporation. This evaporation probably holds things in check and not many of us will get a shower/storm. I will call it isolated for now.
Summation, I think overall our day will feature mixed clouds and sun along with breezes, I will also allow for an isolated PM shower/storm. High temps will be near 78 in Aspen. Indices for Friday....UV Outlook a 6, Outdoor Index a 7, Thunderstorm chance 20%.
Saturday (Updated 615am) - A trough of Low pressure will be spinning its wills up in Idaho and it will be taking a path to the north of us. Expect a mix of sun and clouds with breezy to gusty winds at times. There is a slight chance of a hard sprinkle or shower around. But I wouldn't count on it. Fire danger will be super high!!
Indices for Saturday...UV Outlook a 7, Outdoor Index a 7, Thunderstorm chance 15%.
Extended Forecast (Sun-Tues 6/24-6/26) - The system in Idaho will be creeping ever so closer to NW Colorado bringing Variable clouds with cooler temps , with our best chance of showers and storms in the afternoon. I do not feel it will be a widespread wetting rains by any means but there is a chance some of us will get some. Fingers crossed!!
Monday and beyond looks very nice with High pressure Ridging dominating the area with sunny skies dry and warmer temps.
Summation- Sunburn index will be low with T-storms around 30% chance throughout the valley.
