This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The abnormally warm and dry weather will continue today beneath a
large ridge of high pressure. Winds generally will be lighter
today, though still a bit gusty on the mountain ridges and in the
Front Range foothills where gusts to around 30 mph will be
possible. Winds are also expected to pick up late this afternoon
on the northeast plains, though not as strong as yesterday. The
gusty winds, warm temperatures and low humidity will keep the fire
danger elevated today. The passage of a weak frontal system late
tonight will bring slightly cooler air and gusty northerly winds
to the northeast plains. Otherwise, it will remain dry.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Dry and unseasonably warm conditions will continue through the
middle of next week as a strong high pressure ridge remains over
the western United States. Temperatures will average 10 to 20
degrees above normal across the plains. There will be gusty winds
on the plains at times during the afternoons which will keep the
rangeland fire danger moderate to high. Weak frontal systems will
bring some cooling on Monday, and again on Wednesday and Thursday
across lower elevations.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
