...RED FLAG WARNING IS IN EFFECT TODAY FROM 10 AM UNTIL 6 PM FOR
PORTIONS OF THE NORTHERN PLAINS NEAR THE WYOMING BORDER...

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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP OVER
THE MOUNTAINS THIS AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE INTO TONIGHT. A COUPLE
OF THOSE STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HEAVY RAINFALL OF AN
INCH OR MORE. ON THE PLAINS...THE LOWER LEVELS OF THE ATMOSPHERE
ARE STILL DRIER SO THERE IS ONLY A SLIGHT CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS
CLOSER TO THE FOOTHILLS. MAIN THREATS OF THESE STORMS WOULD BE GUSTY
OUTFLOW WINDS TO AROUND 45 MPH...LIGHTNING...AND ONLY LIGHT
RAINFALL. CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS WILL INCREASE OVER THE
EASTERN PLAINS THIS AFTERNOON...ESPECIALLY OVER THE NORTHERN
PLAINS NEAR THE WYOMING BORDER. LACK OF RAIN IN THIS AREA COMBINED
WITH GUSTY WINDS AND LOWERED RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES COULD CAUSE
RAPID FIRE SPREAD. OUTDOOR BURNING IS NOT RECOMMENDED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

EXPECT COOLER TEMPERATURES WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY. THERE WILL
CONTINUE TO BE SCATTERED LATE DAY SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS FOR
THE MOUNTAINS AND FOOTHILLS THROUGH FRIDAY...WHILE THERE WILL BE
LESS OF A CHANCE OVER THE PLAINS. THE EXCEPTION MAY BE FRIDAY WHEN
AN UPPER DISTURBANCE WILL INCREASE THE CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS
AREA WIDE.

CONDITIONS WILL WARM AND DRY OUT SLIGHTLY THIS WEEKEND AND INTO
MONDAY.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
