This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong and gusty winds will continue above timberline and across
wind prone areas of the Front Range Foothills through tonight.
Peak gusts in these areas will reach 60 to 70 mph. Gusty winds
will also spread onto the nearby adjacent plains and across
locations closer to the Wyoming border, but peak winds in those
areas will be closer to 40 mph. Fire danger may be elevated in
areas that see the stronger winds.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

It will be dry and mild through midweek. Gusty winds along the
northern state border will combine with low humidity elevating
the fire danger on the northern plains Wednesday. On Thursday
expect it to turn colder, windy and wet with a quick hitting
Pacific storm system. The Front Range mountains and foothills
could see several inches of snow by evening, with an inch or two
of snow accumulation possible near the base of the foothills and
on the Palmer Divide. Out across the plains, there will be a
chance of light rain showers. Friday and Saturday look dry and
windy at times with temperatures remaining below average.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
