...Critical Fire Danger this Afternoon for Portions of Northeast

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Northerly winds will increase across the northeast plains of
Colorado today behind a quick moving dry cold front. Winds could
gust to 45 mph this afternoon especially up along the Wyoming and
Nebraska borders and across Washington County. Humidities will be
slightly higher on the plains today with the cooler temperatures
behind the front. However, the strong and gusty winds will be
sufficient to produce critical rangeland fire behavior across the
northeast corner of the state. Otherwise, expect another dry day
and night with generally light breezes and above average

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Dry and unseasonably warm conditions will continue through
Thursday due to a strong high pressure ridge over the western
United States. Temperatures will average 10 to 20 degrees above
normal across the plains. Thursday will bring some cooling along
with a chance of snow for the mountains. Another disturbance over
the weekend could produce additional snow over the higher
elevations and cooler temperatures across the plains.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
