NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PUEBLO CO  
358 AM MDT TUE APR 13 2021  
   
DISCUSSION
 
 
RAIN AND SNOW WILL SPREAD ACROSS SOUTHERN COLORADO WITH THE BEST  
CHANCES ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS AND THE UPPER ARKANSAS RIVER VALLEY  
AND PIKES PEAK REGION THROUGH TONIGHT. SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW WILL  
BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS WITH WET AND SLUSHY  
CONDITIONS AT TIMES DOWN TO 6000 FEET NEAR THE MOUNTAINS. THE PLAINS  
WILL SEE ONLY TRACE AMOUNTS OF PRECIPITATION FROM THIS EVENT.  
 
THE SAN LUIS VALLEY COULD SEE NEAR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS  
RETURN FOR BOTH WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY AS BREEZY SOUTHERLY WINDS  
INCREASE EACH AFTERNOON. MEANWHILE, THE MOUNTAINS WILL SEE ROUNDS OF  
SHOWERS EACH DAY, WITH THE NEXT POTENTIAL FOR SHOWERS ACROSS THE PLAINS  
THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN BELOW NORMAL FOR MOST OF  
THE AREA THROUGH NEXT WEEKEND.  
 
AFTERNOON SMOKE DISPERSIONS WILL RISE INTO THE GOOD OR BETTER CATEGORY  
FOR MOST OF THE AREA. THE EXCEPTION WILL BE ACROSS THE CENTRAL AND  
SOUTHEAST MOUNTAINS AND UPPER ARKANSAS RIVER VALLEY WHERE CLOUDY SKIES  
AND SHOWERS WILL KEEP DISPERSIONS POOR. WEDNESDAY SHOULD SEE AN  
IMPROVEMENT FOR MOST AREAS.
