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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The combination of low humidity and gusty west winds will lead to
high fire danger this afternoon over the eastern mountains and along
the Interstate 25 corridor. Outdoor burning or any other activities
that could accidentally start a wildfire today should be

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Near-critical fire weather conditions will be possible across the
across portions of the southeastern Colorado Plains on Saturday,
as west to southwest winds increase ahead of a strong storm
system moving into the Great Basin.

This storm system looks to move into the Four Corners Region
Saturday night, and then continue across southeastern Colorado
through the day Sunday, before lifting into north central Kansas
into Sunday night. This system is expected to bring gusty winds
and moderate to heavy snowfall to the higher terrain of the
Continental Divide late Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning,
with hazardous travel expected across the higher mountain passes
through the day Sunday.

The exact track of this system remains in question, however, the
current projected path would support a period of wind driven snow
across Eastern Colorado on Sunday, with strong and gusty north
winds expected Sunday and Sunday night behind a passing cold
front. Light to moderate snow accumulations will be possible
across portions of the Eastern Mountains, the Palmer Divide and
Raton Mesa, with generally light snow accumulations possible
across the rest of the Southeast Plains. Hazardous travel
conditions will also be possible across Southeast Colorado on
Sunday, with the potential for poor visibilities in snow and
blowing snow.

Another weak storm system could bring some light accumulating
snow to the higher terrain of the Central Mountains Monday and


Weather spotters will not be needed today or tonight.
