Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR S Cntrl and Sern Colorado
National Weather Service Pueblo Co
413 AM MDT Thu Apr 19 2018

...A RED FLAG WARNING has been issued for 11 AM through 8 PM
today for gusty winds, low relative humidity values, high Haines
indices and dry fuels for fire weather zones 220 through 222, 224
through 233 and 235, which includes the San Luis Valley, the lower
elevations of the Sangre de Cristo, Wet Mountains, Pikes Peak and
the Rampart Range, and Lake, Chaffee, Fremont, El Paso, Pueblo,
Crowley, Huerfano, Las Animas, Bent and Otero Counties...

.Discussion...

Critical fire weather conditions are expected over much of southern
Colorado today.  Humidities will drop to between about 10 and 15 percent
this afternoon, with wind gusts of 35 to 45 mph, and maybe even around
50 mph in some locations.  The low humidity values and strong winds,
combined with the dry fuels will result in high fire danger.

A storm system will affect the area tonight through Saturday.  Wetting
precipitation can be expected over the mountains areas, and many lower
elevation locations will likely see measurable precipitation.

Dry conditions return to the region on Sunday.

Excellent smoke dispersion can be expected this afternoon.
