This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Elevated wildfire weather conditions are expected this afternoon
in the high valleys of Summit, Grand, Jackson, and Park Counties.
Low relative humidity and gusty southwest winds are the principle
concerns, however values should remain below thresholds needed for
large fire growth and spread.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Gusty northwest winds will develop behind a cold frontal passage
on Saturday, with peak gusts around 45 mph on the plains, and up
to 65 mph in the higher mountains. Grassland fire danger will be
elevated due to the strong gusty winds. Scattered snow showers
will occur in the northern mountains mainly north of the I-70
Corridor, but little if any accumulation is expected.

Dry conditions will persist through next Thursday, with
temperatures rebounding to above normal levels for much of next


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
