This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong and gusty northerly winds will occur across most of the
plains this afternoon. As a result, high fire danger and hazardous
travel conditions can be expected, especially for locations east
and northeast of Denver. Patchy blowing dust may also sharply
reduce visibilities near open fields. Sustained wind speeds of 25
to 40 mph will continue through mid afternoon, with gusts reaching
50 to 60 mph. Wind speeds will gradually decrease late this
afternoon into the evening.

From Boulder into the central and western sections of Denver,
somewhat lighter winds can be expected through the entire day.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

It will stay dry and unseasonably warm through the middle of next
week with temperatures running several degrees above average.
Gusty winds on the plains at times will keep the rangeland fire
danger moderate to high.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. However,
any reports of strong winds or blowing dust will be appreciated.
