.Discussion...

Red Flag conditions have ended across most of the southeast plains
this evening...therefore the Red Flag warning was allowed to
expire at 600 PM for Las Animas and Baca Counties.  Cooler
temperatures will spread in across all of the district for Friday
through the weekend.  On Monday, near critical fire weather conditions
may once again redevelop across the lower elevations of the district.

Smoke dispersion rates will be very good or better both tomorrow
and Saturday.
