Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR S Cntrl and Sern Colorado
National Weather Service Pueblo Co
402 AM MST Sat Dec 9 2017

.Discussion...

Dry and warmer conditions are anticipated over the fire district
from this weekend into next week in combination with lower
winds this weekend.  Then, the potential for some near critical
fire weather conditions increase Monday, especially across the far
southeastern Colorado plains.

Most locations will experience good or better afternoon dispersion
today, although portions of the San Luis Valley should note poor
to fair values today. Then, decreased smoke dispersion values should
be experienced over the majority of the fire district Sunday.

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