THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

GUSTY SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL PREVAIL ACROSS NORTHEAST AND NORTH
CENTRAL COLORADO THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. GUSTS TO 30 MPH
CAN BE EXPECTED OVER MUCH OF THE AREA...WITH SOME GUSTS NEAR 40
MPH ACROSS NORTH AND MIDDLE PARKS. THERE WILL BE A CHANCE FOR
SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS WITH
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE PLAINS. THE STORMS WILL PRODUCE
GUSTY WINDS...LIGHTNING BUT ONLY LIGHT TO BRIEF MODERATE RAINFALL.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE WARMER WITH READINGS MUCH ABOVE NORMAL.
THE GUSTY WINDS AND WARM TEMPERATURES WILL ELEVATE THE FIRE
DANGER ACROSS THE PLAINS...BUT SLIGHTLY HIGHER HUMIDITIES AND THE
GREENING UP FUELS SHOULD KEEP THE DANGER FROM BECOMING CRITICAL.
FOR TONIGHT...THE FEW REMAINING SHOWERS WILL END ON THE PLAINS
BEFORE MIDNIGHT BUT SOME MAY LINGER ALL NIGHT IN THE HIGH COUNTRY.
GUSTY SOUTHWEST WINDS WILL CONTINUE IN MOST AREAS OVERNIGHT IN
ADVANCE OF A WEATHER DISTURBANCE MOVING ACROSS THE EASTERN GREAT
BASIN.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

GUSTY WINDS TO 50 MPH WILL BE BLOWING OVER THE HIGH MOUNTAIN AREAS
WEDNESDAY MORNING ALONG WITH ISOLATED TO SCATTERED RAIN AND SNOW
SHOWERS LASTING INTO THE AFTERNOON. SNOW LEVELS WILL BE AROUND 7
THOUSAND FT OVER THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS AND BETWEEN 8 TO 9
THOUSAND FEET NEAR AND SOUTH OF I70. EXPECT ONLY A FEW INCHES OF
SNOW TO FALL AT HIGHER ELEVATIONS. A SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL OCCUR OVER THE PLAINS...MAINLY EAST OF THE
URBAN CORRIDOR. IT WILL BE WINDY ON WEDNESDAY BOTH AHEAD AND
BEHIND A COLD FRONT EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS THE AREA IN THE
AFTERNOON. DRY AND WINDY CONDITIONS...ESPECIALLY OVER LINCOLN
COUNTY...AHEAD OF THE FRONT WILL INCREASE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.

FOR THURSDAY AND FRIDAY IT WILL BE DRY WITH ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES.  A STRONGER STORM SYSTEM MAY IMPACT THE AREA THIS
WEEKEND BRINGING A CHANCE OF PRECIPITATION AND COOLER
TEMPERATURES.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
