Fire Weather Forecast for Northeast and North Central Colorado
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
445 AM MST Sat Feb 17 2018

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE SUNDAY MORNING THROUGH
SUNDAY AFTERNOON for the Palmer Divide...fire weather zones
241...246...and 247.

.DISCUSSION...Today and tonight...A strong northwest flow aloft
and the presence of a mountain wave will continue to produce
periods of strong and gusty Chinook winds in and near the Front
Range mountains and foothills today and tonight. Strongest wind
speeds are likely to occur tonight with gusts to 80 mph possible
at higher elevations. Except for spotty light snow showers this
morning in the northern mountains, dry and warmer conditions are
on tap today and tonight. Near to slightly above average
temperatures will prevail. In addition, low relative humidity,
gusty southerly winds and the mild temperatures will elevate the
rangeland fire danger across Elbert and Lincoln Counties this
afternoon.

LONG TERM DISCUSSION...Sunday through Wednesday...High winds will
continue over the mountains and foothills Sunday morning but then
decreasing in the afternoon. High fire danger is expected for
the Palmer divide region for Sunday afternoon with low humidities
and gusty southwest winds. Colder with a chance of snow on Monday
with an approaching disturbance and cold front over the mountains
and plains. Drier conditions will return late Tuesday and
Wednesday.

       ...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...
