This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

It will be cooler and continued dry under high pressure today. Winds
will increase tonight in the mountains and foothills as the next
storm system approaches.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Dry, breezy and unseasonably warm weather on Thursday will elevate
the wildland fire danger on the plains and Palmer Divide. The
threat of fire should quickly diminish with darkness. Thursday
night into Friday, a strong Pacific storm system sliding south
across the region is expected to bring snow, strong winds and much
colder temperatures the high country. Snowfall in the mountains
could be heavy at times on Friday, especially on northwest facing
slopes and high passes. Strong gusty winds may also produce areas
of blowing snow possibly creating poor travel conditions. There
is also a chance of rain and snow showers on the plains late on
Friday with the passage of a strong cold front. Any snow
accumulation should be minor and confined to areas near the
foothills and on the Palmer Divide. Dry and gradually warmer
weather should return for the weekend, with another chance of
snow mainly for the high country Monday night.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
