500 AM MDT Sun Apr 5 2020

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Gusty winds, low relative humidity values and dry fuels will result
in high fire danger across the San Luis Valley and most of the
southeast plains this afternoon and evening.  Any activities which
could spark a fire should be avoided as southwest winds gusting up
to 30 mph will cause rapid rates of fire growth and spread.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Critical fire weather conditions will be possible across the San
Luis Valley and portions of the southeast plains Monday and Tuesday
as a combination of low relative humidity values, gusty winds,
and dry fuels result in elevated fire danger.

Another more potent storm system may spread snow into the
mountains with a rain and snow shower mix across the plains by
late week. There is still considerable uncertainty with the storm
track and timing, so please continue to monitor the latest
forecasts concerning this developing storm.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather spotters will not be needed today or tonight.
