A trough currently off the West Coast will move into the central
rockies Sunday. Moisture streaming into the region could bring
isolated showers to the area by daybreak Monday as a cold front
slides in from the north. There is marginal instability along and
south of the front and couldn't rule out a rumble of thunder late
Sunday night into Monday as well. Precipitation chances continue Monday
night...but should be east of the area by daybreak Tuesday as the
upper trough moves through. Dry weather for the remainder of the
