National Weather Service Pueblo Co
823 PM MDT Wed Apr 25 2018

.Discussion...

A couple of weather disturbances will move across the forecast
area during this forecast period. The first disturbance will
advance through the region tomorrow morning and will bring lower
temperatures, windy conditions, and a slight chance of showers for
the Palmer Divide and eastern mountains. The second disturbance
will bring more widespread precip chances to the mountain areas
Saturday, with more isolated chances across the plains. Precip
chances linger across at least parts of the forecast area through
the start of next week.

Near-critical to critical fire weather conditions will be
possible this Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday across much of the
plains and San Luis Valley.

Smoke dispersion will be very good or better across the entire
forecast area tomorrow afternoon.
