This hazardous weather outlook is for east central Colorado...
extreme southwest Nebraska and northwest Kansas.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT...

Critical fire weather conditions are expected this afternoon in
northeast Colorado and adjacent areas of northwest Kansas and
southwest Nebraska due to dry fuels, low humidity and gusty south
winds.

There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms this afternoon and
evening mainly in northwest Kansas and southwest Nebraska. Damaging
wind gusts will be the main threat. Wind gusts in excess of 80 mph
and large hail can`t be ruled out with stronger storms. Blowing dust
and reduced visibilities may develop as a result of these strong
winds. An isolated brief tornado may also be possible.

Strong northerly winds will develop in northeast Colorado after
midnight tonight and spread into parts of northwest Kansas by
sunrise Friday morning. Wind gusts up to 65 mph will be possible.
Reduced visibility in areas of blowing dust will be possible for
locations that do not receive precipitation.

Rain will change to snow or a mix of rain and snow in northeast
Colorado late tonight and early Friday morning. Areas of blowing
snow will be possible where snowfall correlates with strong winds.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...

Strong winds gusting to 65 mph will continue through Friday
afternoon, and a wintry mix may continue to impact locations
generally along and west of Highway 27. The best chance for slushy
light snow accumulations and blowing snow will be in eastern Colorado
Friday morning. Prepare for the possibility of rapidly changing and
hazardous travel conditions especially Friday morning along and west
of the Colorado state line.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be required this after 3 PM MST (4 PM CST)
through this evening.
