...HIGH FIRE DANGER ON THE PLAINS...SOUTHEAST OF DENVER TODAY...
THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL

Warmer temperatures, strengthening southwest winds, and low
humidities will create high fire danger on the plains south of
Interstate 70 today. Winds will gust as high a 35 mph in that
area, with lighter winds across northeastern Colorado.
In the mountains there will be some light snow showers developing
this afternoon. Snow will become likely by this evening and
continue overnight. There will also be wind gusts up to 50 mph
over the higher mountains, which will create areas of blowing and
.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY
Snow along with gusty winds will continue in the mountains
through Tuesday night. Areas along and west of the Continental
Divide could receive a total of 5 to 10 inches through that
time, with locally higher amounts in the area around Rabbit Ears
Pass. A cold frontal passage across the plains in Tuesday
afternoon will allow for light snow, 2 inches or less or occur,
mainly around and to the southeast of Denver into the evening.
Strong winds are expected late Tuesday night and Wednesday in the
foothills, along the Cheyenne Ridge and over the northeast
plains. Gusts up to 35 mph are expected over the northeast plains,
with gusts of 45 to 60 mph along the foothills and Cheyenne Ridge.
Dry and warmer weather will then return to the outlook area
Thursday through the weekend as high pressure builds into the
region from the west.
