...HIGH FIRE DANGER ON THE PLAINS SOUTHEAST OF DENVER THIS
AFTERNOON...

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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Warmer temperatures, strengthening southwest winds, and low
humidities will create high fire danger on the plains south of
Interstate 70 today. Winds will gust as high a 35 mph in that
area, with lighter winds across northeastern Colorado.

In the mountains there will be some light snow showers developing
today. Snow will become likely by this evening and continue
overnight. There will also be wind gusts up to 50 mph over the
higher mountains, which will create areas of blowing and drifting
snow.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

Light to moderate snow will continue in the mountains through
Tuesday night. Areas along and west of the Continental Divide could
receive a total 5 to 10 inches through that time, with locally
higher amounts in the area around Rabbit Ears Pass. Gusty west
winds on the higher passes will likely produce some blowing and
drifting snow as well. Across the northeast plains, there will a
chance of snow late Tuesday afternoon and evening. The best chance
of some light snow will be to the south and southeast of Denver.

Late Tuesday night and Wednesday, it will be drier with strong
gusty winds developing. The strongest winds appear to be in the
foothills, along the Cheyenne Ridge and over the northeast
plains. Dry and warmer weather will then return to the outlook
area Thursday through Saturday as high pressure builds into the
region from the west. The next potential system may bring a chance
of snow to the mountains for Sunday afternoon, with dry and mild
conditions continuing across the northeast plains.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
