This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

High pressure building over the region today will keep the
weather sunny, mild and dry.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Fire weather will be the main concern for the start of this
period as strong winds and low RH are expected across much of
western Colorado on Sunday for portions of west-central and
southwest Colorado where fuels are critical. This increased
southwest flow under high pressure will also lead to mostly sunny
skies and a return to warm, above normal temperatures.

A few showers will be possible across the north Monday. By mid
week a series of strong spring storm systems will move in from the
west, bringing chances for rain and possibly winter weather.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
