This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...east
central...south central and southeast Colorado.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Fire danger will be high today as a result of strong winds,
low humidities and dry fuels in Teller and Fremont counties, over
the I-25 corridor and the southeast plains.  Outdoor burning or any
other activity that could accidentally start a wildfire should be

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

On Thursday, the fire danger will be elevated over the area as
breezy conditions, low humidities and dry grasses combine to produce
near critical fire weather conditions over parts of the plains.
Outdoor burning or any other activities that could accidentally
start a wildfire should be postponed.

An early, fall storm system is forecast to dig south into the Great
Basin on Friday and remain there through Monday.  It is currently
forecast to be in prime position to bring bouts of severe weather to
the plains each day Friday through Sunday. Then, on Monday, the
storm system would finally swing far enough east to allow a cold
front to drop south through the plains, ending the severe weather

While severe weather impacts the plains, snow showers will be
possible in the mountains through the period.  Friday through
Sunday, any snow showers will probably be pretty spotty and confined
mainly to elevations above 10,000 feet.  However, on Monday,
following the cold front, the snow showers may become more
widespread and fall down to about 8,000 feet, particularly over the
eastern mountains.

This system is still a few days away and the details of how it will
actually move through the area are yet to be resolved.  Please stay
tuned for the latest forecast updates throughout the week.


Weather spotters will not be needed today or tonight.
