THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Another day of very warm temperatures and gusty southerly winds
up to 40 mph over the Palmer Divide and eastern plains will lead
to elevated fire danger today. Only isolated to scattered light
rain showers will be possible very late this afternoon into the
evening hours as a weather disturbance moves across the area.

In the mountains, rain and snow showers will be developing by
late afternoon. This precipitation will turn to all snow and may
become heavy for a brief time this evening as a cold front moves
across the area. Snow accumulations of 2 to 6 inches can be
expected in elevations above 9000 feet. Road conditions will
likely deteriorate quickly with the onset of more widespread and
heavier snow early this evening.

There will also be a period of strong gusty downslope winds
developing in and near the Front Range Foothills this evening.
Peak gusts may reach 60 mph in wind prone areas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

Dry weather will return for Monday with gusty winds across the
higher terrain and plains near the Wyoming border. Fire danger
will increase in the northern Foothills and across the plains by
afternoon.

Tuesday and Wednesday it will be dry except for a slight chance
of snow showers in the mountains. Fire Danger will remain high
over the foothills and plains due to well above normal
temperatures and gusty winds at times. The next storm system is
expected to reach the area by Thursday. This system will bring a
good chance of snow to the mountains with a chance of rain and
snow to lower elevations along with colder temperatures.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be required today or tonight.
