NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PUEBLO CO
750 AM MDT THU APR 16 2015

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON UNTIL 7 PM TODAY FOR
GUSTY WINDS...LOW HUMIDITIES AND DRY FUELS FOR FIRE ZONE
224...WHICH INCLUDES THE SAN LUIS VALLEY...

.DISCUSSION...

A LARGE LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WILL AFFECT THE AREA INTO SUNDAY.
STRONG SOUTHERLY WINDS IN THE SAN LUIS VALLEY TODAY...ALONG WITH
LOW HUMIDITIES...ESPECIALLY OVER WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE VALLEY...
WILL RESULT IN HIGH FIRE DANGER.  MOST OF THE AREA WILL SEE SOME
PRECIPITATION...BUT THE MOUNTAINS WILL HAVE THE HIGHEST
CHANCES AS THIS LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM SLOWLY MOVES ACROSS THE AREA.
THE HIGHER MOUNTAIN AREAS...ESPECIALLY THE CENTRAL MOUNTAINS...
THE PIKES PEAK AREA AND THE EASTERN MOUNTAINS WILL LIKELY SEE
SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW.

SMOKE DISPERSION TODAY IS EXPECTED TO BE GOOD OR BETTER IN MOST
LOCATIONS...WITH GOOD TO EXCELLENT DISPERSION ON FRIDAY.
