Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR S Cntrl and Sern Colorado
National Weather Service Pueblo Co
440 AM MDT Fri Sep 22 2017

...A Red Flag Warning is in effect from 11 AM until 7 PM MDT
today for gusty winds, low humidities and dry fuels for fire
weather zones 227 through 232, which includes the southern I-25
corridor and the adjacent plains of Crowley and Otero counties...

.Discussion...

It will be windy today across most of southern Colorado, with
south to southwest winds gusting up to 40 mph at many locations.
Moisture will be gradually increasing, but it appears likely
that the I-25 corridor and adjacent plains will see a long enough
period of critical fire weather conditions this afternoon to
necessitate a Red Flag Warning running from 11 AM until 7 PM.
Meanwhile...thunderstorms will be possible across the mountains
and far eastern plains this afternoon and evening as moisture
steadily streams up from the south.

Major changes will occur this weekend as a deep trough
of lower pressure moves towards the region. It will be mild and
breezy early Saturday, but clouds will increase with a chance
of showers and storms during the afternoon. A strong cold front
will cross the region Saturday night, and Sunday will be
much cooler with widespread showers. Cool and unsettled conditions
will continue into the first half of next week, before warmer and
drier weather returns by next weekend.

Smoke dispersion will be very good or better this afternoon and
again Saturday afternoon.

--- thunderstorms imply strong gusty and erratic winds ---
