Fire Weather Forecast for Northeast and North Central Colorado
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
409 AM MST Fri Feb 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...Today and tonight...A cold, moist, and slightly
unstable airmass will remain over northern Colorado today behind a
departing low pressure system. Snow showers will continue over the
mountains but accumulations will be light. On the plains there
will be some flurries but accumulations will be limited to the
northeast corner this morning and perhaps near the foothills with
some showers in the late afternoon and early evening. Smoke
dispersal will generally be poor on the plains, with better mixing
over the mountains.

LONG TERM DISCUSSION...Saturday through Tuesday...A couple of
weak upper level storms will move across the forecast area Saturday
night and again on Tuesday.  There will be enough moisture with the
storms for limited mountain snowfall.  The plains look to be dry
Saturday through Tuesday.  Temperatures will be below seasonal normals
all four days.

       ...Thunderstorms imply strong gusty erratic winds...
  ...All surface winds are 20-Foot...10-Minute averaged winds...
  ...CWR is Chance of Wetting Rain - 0.10 inch or more liquid...
  ...24 HR Trends are based on averages over the respective zone
        groups and may not match the actual forecast values
                    shown in those groups...
