Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR S Cntrl and Sern Colorado
National Weather Service Pueblo Co
401 AM MDT Mon May 22 2017

.Discussion...

Scattered showers early this morning across the area will
gradually shift south and east by mid-morning, with a dry
period from late morning into the afternoon. The next
weather system will then bring scattered to numerous
showers and thunderstorms to most locations late this
afternoon and overnight. Drier conditions will then
develop Tuesday, with only a few showers lingering
over the mountains. High temperatures will remain below
seasonal averages both today and Tuesday. After a dry
and warmer day on Wednesday, shower and thunderstorm
chances will return to the region each afternoon and
evening from Thursday into the weekend, while
temperatures remain seasonably warm.

Afternoon smoke dispersion should reach good or better
levels at most locations today and again on Tuesday.

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