...Red Flag Warning Until 7 PM MDT This Evening...

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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Gusty west winds, very warm temperatures and low relative humidity
will combine with very dry vegetation to produce very high fire
danger for the the northern foothills and adjacent plains of
northeast Colorado through early this evening. West winds of 15 to
25 mph will be common today with higher gusts to around 40 mph in
the foothills and nearby plains. In addition, high temperatures
today will be near record levels with relative humidities in the
single digits and teens on the plains. Overnight, the fire danger
should decrease with cooler temperatures and higher humidities.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

The fire danger will remain high on Monday with very warm
temperatures and low relative humidity. Winds are not expected to
be as gusty though, except up along the Wyoming border and over
the Palmer Divide where winds may gust to 30 mph in the
afternoon.

Monday night and Tuesday, there is a chance of rain and snow
showers in the mountains with the snow level lowering to around
9000 feet during the overnight hours. Any snow accumulation will
be minor and confined to higher elevations. There is also a slight
chance of rain showers on the plains Tuesday afternoon and
evening, including a possible gusty thunderstorm or two over the
higher terrain southeast of Denver. Warm, dry and breezy conditions
on Wednesday will again elevate the rangeland fire danger on the
plains.

Wednesday night through Friday...a storm system projected to track
slowly across Colorado is expected to lower temperatures and bring
rain and snow to the high country and a chance of rain showers
to lower elevations. Some mountain areas could see several inches
of snow accumulation and the on plains areas of light to moderate
rainfall. Dry and warmer weather will then return the outlook
area for Saturday.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
