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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

It will be very warm and dry today with near record warmth. Fire
danger will increase over the foothills and plains however winds
will be rather light.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

Unseasonably warm temperatures, gusty west winds and very low
relative humidity will combine with the dry vegetation to produce
very high fire danger for much of northeast Colorado and the
northern Front Range foothills Sunday afternoon and early evening.
Agricultural burning and fires outdoors should be avoided because
of the high risk of large fire growth and rapid fire spread.

Cooler temperatures, less wind and slightly higher humidity on
Monday should reduce the fire danger. By mid-afternoon...the
mountains and high foothills may even see a few showers develop
with the snow level up around timberline. Rain and snow chances
will increase across the high country Monday night with the
passage of an upper level weather disturbance. The plains may
also see a stray shower or two in the evening. On Tuesday, areas
in and near the Front Range could possibly see a few thunderstorms
produce gusty winds and light rainfall late in the day. A few of
these of showers may also move out over the plains during the
evening. Dry and warmer weather on Wednesday will then be
replaced with cooler and unsettled weather Wednesday night and
Thursday with a passing Pacific storm system. The amount of
cooling and precipitation produced by this storm remains
uncertain at this time.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
