...HIGH WIND WARNING FOR THE FRONT RANGE MOUNTAINS AND FOOTHILLS
WITH HIGH WINDS REDEVELOPING TONIGHT...
...FIRE WEATHER WATCH OVER THE PALMER DIVIDE SUNDAY AFTERNOON...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong and gusty west winds of 40 to 55 mph will continue in the
mountains and higher Front Range foothills today. Northwest winds
of 20 to 35 mph can also be expected on the plains near the
foothills and along the Wyoming border. Tonight, chinook winds are
likely to become quite strong and gusty in the Front Range
mountains and foothills with gusts of 55 to 85 mph possible in
areas prone to high winds. A High Wind Warning remains in effect
for the the mountains and foothills due to the expected increase
in winds this evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

The strong winds in the Front Range mountains and foothills will
continue through Sunday morning and then decrease by afternoon.
Wind gusts from 65 to 80 mph will be possible in areas prone to
high winds, such as open terrain above timberline and east slopes
of the Front Range generally above 7000 feet.  Elevated fire
danger is expected over the Palmer Divide Sunday afternoon with
low humidities and gusty southwest winds.

After a dry and warm Sunday, another Pacific storm system is
expected to bring snow and much colder temperatures to the outlook
area Monday and Tuesday. It`s possible that temperatures on the
plains Tuesday may not reach the 20 degree mark. Snow amounts with
this storm still remain uncertain at this time, but it appears
several inches of snow can be anticipated in the mountains, with
lighter snow accumulations over most of the plains. Dry and
warmer weather should then return to the outlook area Wednesday
and Thursday.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. However,
reports of strong winds will be appreciated.
