Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR S Cntrl and Sern Colorado
National Weather Service Pueblo Co
351 AM MDT Thu Aug 17 2017

.Discussion...

The weather pattern will be warmer and drier for the next several
days. There will still be daily chances for showers and storms but
overall storm coverage and intensity will be lower than it has been
over the past few weeks.  In addition, temperatures will run closer
to average.  The weather pattern may turn wetter again by the middle
of next week but the outlook remains uncertain at this time. The risk
for critical fire weather conditions over the next week will be low.

Afternoon ventilation rates will generally be very good to excellent
today.  On Friday, rates will generally be fair to good.

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