Fire Weather Forecast for Northeast and North Central Colorado
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
432 AM MDT Wed Aug 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...Today and tonight...Light westerly flow aloft will
remain in place under a ridge of high pressure. Temperatures will
turn a few degrees warmer on the plains with lower humidity levels
returning. Isolated to scattered thunderstorm coverage can be
expected, with the highest coverage in the mountains and
foothills, and over the eastern plains. All storms will produce
variable and gusty outflow winds, with only light rain along the
Front Range and nearby plains. Farther east, stronger storms with
more meaningful rainfall will be possible. Mixing heights will be
high but light transport winds may limit smoke dispersion in and
near the Front Range.

LONG TERM DISCUSSION...Thursday through Sunday...There will be
increased cloud cover and thunderstorm activity Thursday and
Thursday night as an upper level disturbance crosses the state and
interacts with subtropical moisture moving up from the south.
Mountain areas will see scattered thunderstorms with small hail
and locally wetting rains. On the plains, locally heavy rain will
be possible along with hail and gusty winds. For Friday through
the weekend, warmer temperatures and drier conditions are expected
with fewer thunderstorms. Flow aloft will be moderate and
westerly on Thursday and then more northwesterly over the weekend.
Temperatures will be at or slightly warmer than seasonal normals.

       ...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...
