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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Continued above average temperatures today with highs in the mid
60s on the plains. A cold front from the North in the morning will
bring increased winds to the plains with sustained speeds of 10 to
15 mph with gusts up to 35 closer to the Kansas border. This
combined with borderline relative humidity values from 15 to 20
percent will increase fire danger on the plains by this
afternoon.

Tonight...clouds will increase over the region with light snow
possible in the mountains. Little to no accumulation is expected
but temperatures will drop in the mountains into the teens and low
20s overnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

Warm temperatures and breezy conditions on the plains and Palmer
Divide will keep elevated fire weather conditions in the forecast
through the weekend. The chance of showers will increase by Sunday
afternoon and night, with snow levels lowering to mountain valley
floors Sunday evening. A few inches of accumulation will be
possible in the mountains. On the plains, look for mostly dry
conditions with only isolated to scattered rain showers possible
late Sunday afternoon and evening.

Dry, breezy, and warm conditions Monday and Tuesday may bring
critical fire danger conditions.

The next storm system is then expected to reach the area by
Thursday, but the expected track of this storm would keep the main
threat of accumulating snowfall across the Colorado high country.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be required today or tonight.
