Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR S Cntrl and Sern Colorado
National Weather Service Pueblo Co
406 AM MST Thu Nov 23 2017

.Discussion...
Unseasonably warm conditions will continue through Friday with
temperatures expected to challenge record highs for today.
Breezy northwest winds will return across the mountains, especially
for Friday with near critical fire weather conditions possible for
the southern I-25 corridor.  A fast moving system will spread a
slight chance of light snow into the central mountains on Friday
and send a dry cold front through the plains. This will result in
cooler temperatures for Saturday.  The next system will approach the
area on Monday bringing windy conditions for all areas and snow
to the Continental Divide.  Depending on the speed of this system,
there will be a chance that critical fire weather conditions will be
met across much of the southeast plains.  Cooler conditions will
return for Tuesday and depending on the track and strength of this
system a slight chance for rain and snow will be possible for the
southeast mountains and adjacent plains as well.

Light winds will be the limiting factor for todays afternoon smoke
dispersions with most areas rising into the Fair to Good category.
Higher dispersions can be expected for Friday with most areas in
the very good to excellent category during the afternoon.

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