FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR S CNTRL AND SERN COLORADO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PUEBLO CO
347 AM MDT THU SEP 18 2014

.DISCUSSION...

GENERALLY DRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED TODAY...WITH JUST A SLIGHT
CHANCE FOR A FEW SHOWERS OR THUNDERSTORMS ALONG THE CONTINENTAL
DIVIDE IN THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING.  TONIGHT IT IS POSSIBLE
FOR SOME SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO MOVE INTO THE SOUTHERN
COLORADO BORDER AREAS.  TEMPS TODAY WILL AGAIN BE ABOVE AVERAGE.

ON FRIDAY ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED OVER THE MOUNTAINS...WITH SCATTERED ACTIVITY BEING
POSSIBLE OVER THE SOUTHEAST PLAINS SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 50. ON
SATURDAY...ISOLATED TO SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
OVER THE MOUNTAINS IN THE AFTERNOON...AND POSSIBLY SPREADING
TO THE LOWER ELEVATIONS IN THE EVENING.  MOISTURE IS EXPECTED
TO INCREASE ON SUNDAY OVER THE WESTERN HALF OF COLORADO AS A
WEATHER SYSTEM MOVES INTO THE GREAT BASIN.  THIS SHOULD LEAD TO
A BETTER CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND HIGH
VALLEYS...WHILE THE SOUTHEAST PLAINS REMAIN DRY.

GOOD TO VERY GOOD SMOKE DISPERSION IS EXPECTED BY LATE THIS
MORNING OR EARLY THIS AFTERNOON.
