...RED FLAG WARNING NORTH CENTRAL MOUNTAINS AND HIGH VALLEYS NOON
UNTIL 9 PM THIS EVENING...

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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

DRY WEST TO SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL BRING HIGHER FIRE DANGER TO
THE COLORADO HIGH COUNTRY THIS AFTERNOON INTO EARLY EVENING. GUSTY
WINDS WILL COMBINE WITH VERY WARM TEMPERATURES AND LOW HUMIDITY TO
BRING VERY HIGH TO EXTREME FIRE DANGER.

ISOLATED HIGH BASED THUNDERSTORMS WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE NEAR THE
WYOMING BORDER...PRODUCING GUSTY WINDS BUT LITTLE RAINFALL. AS THE
STORMS ENCOUNTER RICHER MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY ON THE EASTERN
PLAINS OF COLORADO THEY MAY INTENSIFY RAPIDLY WITH A SEVERE STORM
POSSIBLE. AT THIS TIME...THE MAIN THREAT WOULD BE LARGE HAIL AND
DAMAGING WINDS UP TO 60 MPH EAST OF A STERLING TO AKRON LINE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

AFTER VERY WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS ON SUNDAY EXCEPT FOR A CHANCE
OF THUNDERSTORMS NEAR THE NEBRASKA BORDER LATE IN THE DAY...LOOK
FOR THE CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS TO INCREASE NEXT WEEK
WITH THE ARRIVAL OF THE SOUTHWEST MONSOON. AFTERNOON AND EVENING
STORMS...PARTICULARLY THOSE ON MONDAY AND WEDNESDAY...COULD
PRODUCE HEAVY RAINFALL POSSIBLY RESULTING IN LOCALIZED FLOODING.
ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES ON SUNDAY ARE EXPECTED TO BE NEAR TO
BELOW AVERAGE NEXT WEEK DUE IN LARGE PART TO GREATER CLOUD COVER.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE NEEDED OVER FAR NORTHEAST COLORADO AFTER
2 PM TODAY.
