This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...east
central...south central and southeast Colorado.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Extreme fire danger is expected today across all of southeast
Colorado and the San Luis Valley, as a result of strong westerly
winds, low humidities, and dry fuels.

Westerly winds at 35 to 45 mph, with gusts of 50 to 60 mph at the
lower elevations, and up to 70 mph over the mountains can be
expected today.

Blowing dust will occur across most if not all of the region
today. Significant amounts of blowing dust, reducing visibility to
below 1/4 mile at times, will occur across the San Luis valley.
The dust should decrease somewhat by mid to late afternoon as the
winds slowly decrease later this afternoon.

The central mountains will likely see 1 to 4 inches of snow
accumulation, mainly this afternoon through early this evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Localized, elevated fire danger will be possible again Wednesday
and especially Thursday, favoring the San Luis Valley as gusty
winds, low humidities and dry fuels will be capable of producing
conditions favorable for the growth and spread of fires.

Then, unsettled conditions, including but not limited to increased
winds, precipitation, thunderstorms and accumulating primarily
higher elevation snow will be possible over many locations from
Thursday evening into Saturday evening as another storm system
impacts the area.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely across southeast and south central Colorado.
