This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Upper ridging will bring a warm and dry day. Gusty winds will be
found in the Front Range Foothills this morning through early
afternoon, with peak gusts reaching 45 to 60 mph in wind prone
areas. Winds of 30 to 35 mph and humidity in the mid to upper
teens near the Wyoming border will produce near critical fire
weather conditions around noon. However the duration is expected
to be very short and yesterdays precipitation has likely decreased
the fuels suseptibility. Lighter winds can be expected elsewhere.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

The next cold front will move across the area Saturday, ushering
in cooler temperatures and a chance of very light snow or light
freezing drizzle across the Front Range and eastern plains
Saturday night into Sunday morning. At this time, any
precipitation is expected to be very light.

Drier and warmer weather will redevelop for the first half of
next week. Then, a cold front and upper level disturbance will
likely bring colder temperatures and a chance of snow to the
forecast area by next Thursday.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
