This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered showers and thundestorms are again expected across much
of eastern Utah and western Colorado today and tonight. Showers
will be most numerous north of Interstate 70. Gusty winds to 50
mph, brief heavy precipitation and small hail will accompany the
strongest storms.

Gusty west to southwest winds area also expected this afternoon.
These winds will combine with very low relative humidity and dry
vegetation to create critical fire weather conditions over the
lower valleys of west-central Colorado. As a result, a Red Flag
Warnings is in effect for the west-central valleys in Colorado
this afternoon and early evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Passing weather disturbances will bring a chance for showers and
thunderstorms each afternoon and evening through early next week.
Gusty outflow winds, small hail and brief heavy precipitation
will be possible with the stronger storms.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
