Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR S Cntrl and Sern Colorado
National Weather Service Pueblo Co
357 AM MST Sat Nov 18 2017

.Discussion...

Upper high pressure will rebuild over the district for the next
several days.  Temperatures today will still be below average in the
wake of yesterday`s storm system.  However, after today,
temperatures will return to above average levels right on through
next week.  There is a week disturbance progged to drop southeast
across the district Monday night and Tuesday.  But right now, it is
not looking very impressive.  It`s main impact will likely be a
slight drop in temperatures and possibly a few spotty rain or snow
showers on Tuesday.

Due to the system that just moved through the area, ventilation
rates will be highly variable over the district this weekend. Please
refer to the detailed fire weather zone forecasts below for the
specifics on the ventilation in your area of concern.

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