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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Critical fire weather conditions will spread across the southern
I-25 corridor and southern plains including eastern Huerfano,
Las Animas and Baca counties. Gusty winds, low relative humidity
and dry vegetation will lead to conditions favorable for rapid
rates of fire growth and spread. A one to two hour period of near
critical fire weather conditions could spread into portions of
Pueblo and southern El Paso county this afternoon which could
cause elevated fire danger. Activities which could start a wild
fire should be avoided this afternoon.

Snow will spread into the Continental Divide late tonight with up to
an inch of accumulation possible across the higher peaks.  Winds
will increase above timberline with gusts up to 65 mph possible for
the higher elevations of the southern Sangre De Cristo mountains
after midnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

A weather system moving north and east across northern Colorado on
Tuesday could bring some light snow accumulations to the higher
terrain along and west of the Continental Divide, especially the
central mountains north of Cottonwood Pass. Westerly winds of 20
to 40 mph, associated with this passing weather system, will
continue across the region on Tuesday. These winds, combined with
much drier air working into the region, could bring critical fire
weather conditions to much of southeastern Colorado on Tuesday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible across the Continental Divide tonight.
