Updated wording on advisories

7:30 am

They have updated the wording on the advisories to allow for surprises, they are at the bottom of the page. I am a little disappointed with the temperatures 2 degrees cooler would make a huge difference. I will post in a couple of hours but the main precipitation band stretches roughly from Durango all of the way into central Utah.
