.Discussion...

Tuesday and Wednesday will be very warm and dry days, except
for some light showers along the Continental Divide. On
Tuesday there will be critical or near critical fire weather
conditions along portions of the I-25 corridor and over Teller
county, while on Wednesday there will be a better chance for
critical conditions over the entire I-25 corridor and across
portions of the southeast plains.

Colder and more unsettled weather returns for the end of the
week into the weekend, with a chance of showers across
much of the region Thursday.

Smoke dispersion will be good over very good over much of the
area this afternoon, the exception will be the far southeast
plains, where light winds are expected to result in poor to
fair smoke dispersion. Stronger winds on Wednesday should
result in excellent smoke dispersion across all of southeast
and south central Colorado.
