Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR S Cntrl and Sern Colorado
National Weather Service Pueblo Co

.Discussion...
Dry and warmer weather will return to the area today
through the day Saturday. For Saturday night and Sunday,
a weather system will move from the Great Basin into 
Arizona and New Mexico and at this time it looks like the
best chances for precipitation will remain to the south
of Colorado, but a cool down can be expected on Sunday.  
Otherwise, dry weather is expected through Wednesday and 
then a new weather system may bring precipitation to the 
area next Thursday.
Smoke dispersion looks to be good over the mountains today, 
with poor dispersion in the San Luis Valley, fair to
good dispersion along the I-25 corridor, and poor to
fair dispersion across the southeast plains. On Saturday, 
dispersions look to be generally poor to fair district wide. 
--- thunderstorms imply strong gusty and erratic winds ---
