Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR S Cntrl and Sern Colorado
National Weather Service Pueblo Co
433 AM MST Tue Dec 12 2017

.Discussion...

Upper high pressure will result in mild and dry weather over
the district today.  Temperatures will be 15 to 25 degrees
above average.  Humidities will be low but winds will be
light enough to avoid the need for fire weather highlights.

On Wednesday, it will continue dry and mild and winds will
increase.  This will result in near critical fire weather
conditions over parts of the district.

Thursday, a disturbance out of Canada will bring colder
weather and a chance for snow showers to the district.  Warmer
weather will return Friday and Saturday.  A new system will
bring another chance for cold and snow to the district late
Saturday through Sunday.

Afternoon ventilation rates will be highly variable over the
district for the next couple of days.  To get an outlook for
your area of concern, please refer to specific fire weather
zone forecasts below.

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