evening for the Foothills and adjacent Plains...

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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Warm and dry conditions, combined with gusty northwest winds will
result in elevated fire weather conditions across the Plains of
northeast Colorado. In and near the Foothills, west winds could
gust to 40 mph today, increasing to possibly 50 mph overnight as a
mountain wave develops just east of the mountains.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

Fire Danger will increase from the Foothills across the Plains on
Tuesday due to gusty winds and well above normal temperatures.
Winds gusts up to 50 mph will be possible in the Foothills with
30 to 40 mph across the Plains.

Fire Danger will remain elevated on Wednesday as well in the
Foothills and across the plains. There will be a chance of snow
showers in the mountains north of I-70.

A storm system is expected to reach the area by Thursday. This
system will bring snow to the mountains with a chance of rain and
snow to lower elevations along with colder temperatures.
