A cold front will approach from the west today. As it does...winds
will pick up across the area gusting from 20 to 30 mph if not

allow critical fire weather conditions to exist. Because of this
fact...a red flag warning has been issued for a few colorado fire
zones from 1pm through 8pm. The cold front will move through later
this evening and overnight bringing some showers and a few
thunderstorms to eastern Utah and western Colorado.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Another cold front will move through the area Wednesday night into
Thursday. Winds will increase again with this system so fire
weather conditions will likely be impacted again. After
that...high pressure will build in bringing a return to some
