.Discussion...

On Wednesday, critical fire weather conditions will develop
along the southern I-25 corridor, with more widespread
critical conditions possible over all the eastern plains on
Thursday.

A strong pacific storm will move across the region Thursday
night and Friday, bringing much cooler and wetter weather to the
area. There will be a good chance of wetting rain and snow
across all of the district during this time period. It will also
be very windy on Friday, with strong north winds likely.

Dry and cool weather returns on Saturday, before another weather
system brings a renewed chance of rain and snow to much of the
region starting Sunday.

Afternoon ventilation rates will generally be fair to good
across the plains on Wednesday and good to excellent elsewhere.
On Thursday, rates will be excellent everywhere.

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