THIS EVENING...

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Unseasonably warm temperatures will continue today as an upper
level ridge of high pressure remains over Colorado. Gusty west to
northwest winds are expected this afternoon with gusts of 25 to 35
mph, with gusts up to 50 mph possible in the foothills of Larimer
and Boulder Counties. The combination of warm temperatures and
gusty winds will raise the fire danger across northeast Colorado
to very high levels. A Red Flag Warning will remain in effect
through early this evening for the potential of extreme fire
behavior if fires get started. Residents should be especially
careful if handling burning materials.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

Warm and dry conditions will prevail through the weekend with a
cool down early next week. The fire danger is expected to be
elevated Saturday and Sunday from the foothills across the plains.
Windy conditions will develop, especially on Sunday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
