Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Colorado and Ern Utah
National Weather Service Grand Junction CO
518 AM MDT Wed May 24 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 7 PM MDT THURSDAY FOR
GUSTY WINDS, LOW HUMIDITY AND DRY FUELS FOR COLORADO FIRE WEATHER
ZONE 207...

.DISCUSSION...
Dry and warm conditions can be expected today as high pressure
shifts east of the area. Cloud cover will be on the increase tonight,
with scattered showers developing along and north of a cold front
that will be dropping south late tonight and Thursday. The cold front
will stall north of the San Juan Mountains on Thursday. This will
result in gusty west to southwest winds and when combined with critical
fuels and low relative humidity, conditions will be favorable for rapid
wildfire growth. Therefore, a Red Flag Warning will be in effect for the
valleys of extreme southwest Colorado. Expect scattered showers and
thunderstorms elsewhere. Beyond Thursday, unsettled weather will remain
in the forecast with a a chance for showers and thunderstorms each
afternoon and evening.

...GUSTY ERRATIC WINDS CAN BE EXPECTED NEAR ANY SHOWERS
OR THUNDERSTORMS...
