...VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER CONTINUES IN AND NEAR THE FOOTHILLS...
THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT
Warm and dry conditions will continue today. Temperatures will
likely be a couple of degrees cooler than yesterday, and winds
will be lighter in most areas. There will still be wind gusts up
to 35 mph in the mountains and foothills. These winds may
also occasionally blow onto the nearby plains this afternoon,
especially in Boulder and Jefferson counties.
There is a chance of light showers tonight, mainly in areas north
of Interstate 70. Any showers will mainly be rain, with some light
snow possible over the higher mountains.
.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY
On Tuesday there will be a chance of rain and snow showers in the
mountains with the snow level around 10000 feet. Any snow
accumulation will be minor. There will also be a slight chance of
rain showers on the plains Tuesday afternoon and evening.
Warm, dry and breezy conditions will develop on Wednesday which will
elevate the fire danger in the foothills and on the plains.
For Thursday into Friday...a storm system is projected to track
slowly across Colorado bringing lower temperatures to the area.
This system will bring snow to the mountains along with a good
chance of rain to lower elevations especially Thursday night into
Friday. Some snow may mix with the rain late Thursday night into
early Friday at lower elevations.
Some mountain areas along with the higher foothills could see
several inches of snow with moderate to heavy rainfall across the
plains. Dry and warmer weather will then return the outlook area
.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
