Colorado Fire Weather zones 203, 290 and 292. Isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms will also occur across the
region today, with gusty outflow winds to 45 mph, brief heavy
precipitation and small hail all possibly. The bulk of this
activity will be north of a line from Blanding, Utah to Gunnison,
Colorado with areas along the Wyoming state-line the most likely
to see wetting rains. Unsettled weather will continue through this
weekend and into early next week.
