Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR S Cntrl and Sern Colorado
National Weather Service Pueblo Co
1231 PM MST Sun Dec 10 2017

.Discussion...
Dry and unseasonably mild weather will continue across the district
for the next several days.  While the upper jet will generally be a
bit far away to produce winds strong enough to trigger fire weather
highlights, humidities will remain low and fuels will remain dry.
Consequently, caution to avoid activities that could accidentally
start wildfires will need to continue during the upcoming week.

Mixing heights and transport winds will be fairly low for the next
couple of days.  Consequently, ventilation rates will generally only
be in the poor or fair ranges.

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