Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR S Cntrl and Sern Colorado
National Weather Service Pueblo Co
340 AM MDT Sun Apr 23 2017

.Discussion...

Building high pressure will bring generally dry and warmer weather
to most of the district through Monday.  There shouldn`t be a need
for fire weather highlights as most of the area is seeing a decent
greenup.  However, in those areas where the greenup may be lagging,
there could be some concern.  It is advisable to avoid outdoor
burning or any other activity that could accidentally start a
wildfire in those areas.

Tuesday through the weekend, the district will be in a cool and wet
pattern.  A series of disturbances will track across the district
during this period, with decent chances for wetting precipitation
over parts of the district on just about any day.  At the present
time, it looks like the best chances for the most widespread,
wetting precipitation will come late Tuesday and again Friday
through Saturday.  Temperatures will run below average during this
period with a possible freeze over the weekend.

Afternoon ventilation rates will generally range from very good to
excellent for the next couple of days.

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