.Discussion...

Red flag conditions will continue mainly along the I-25 corridor
for the rest of this afternoon. The winds will decrease by early
evening, however humidity values are not expected to recover
tonight. For tomorrow, stronger winds will occur over all of the
plains, with gusts to 50 mph likely, especially areas south and
east of Pueblo. Humidity values will be somewhat higher tomorrow
as temperatures will not be as warm as they were today.

A strong pacific cold front will blast south down the plains late
tomorrow afternoon and early evening. This front will bring much
cooler air with it along with increasing humidity values. A few
isolated showers may even occur across the plains later in the
evening.

Much cooler weather will be over the area Friday and lasting into
the weekend.

Critical Fire Weather conditions may redevelop once again early
next week and dry, warm and windy weather return to the district.
Another cold front will move through late Tuesday evening.

Smoke dispersal will be very good or better both tomorrow afternoon
and Friday afternoon across the entire district.

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