This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Gusty northwest winds will continue across the forecast area this
afternoon. The gusty winds combined with low relative humidities
will elevate the fire danger this afternoon.

Winds will become light in most areas by early evening.
The exception will be over the higher mountains and portions of
the Front Range Foothills where wind prone areas may gusts may
increase to 60 mph late tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Dry and mild conditions will dominate through the first half of
the upcoming week. Then a potentially much colder and wetter
weather system will move down from the Pacific Northwest.
Mountain areas should see accumulating snowfall and the plains may
have a mix of rain and snow. There is still a fair amount of
uncertainty regarding the speed and strength of this storm system.
Continue to monitor later forecasts addressing this possibly
significant late week weather change.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
