.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong winds, low humidities and dry fuels will result in another
day of high fire danger across the plains. The severity of
today`s conditions will exceed yesterday`s by a large margin,
being much more widespread and extreme. Burning or any other
activities that could accidentally start a fire should be
postponed.

Wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph will be possible over the area today,
especially in and near the mountains. Winds in this range may
limit visibilities locally due to blowing dust and debris.
Additionally, they can lead to hazardous travel conditions,
particularly for high profile vehicles.

Precipitation through tonight will be confined to snow showers
along the Continental Divide. Local accumulations of 1 to 3 inches
will be possible along the Divide by Thursday morning. Winds
gusting to 50 mph at times will cause areas of blowing snow and
poor visibilities, resulting in hazardous travel at times through
the mountain passes.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Snow is expected across the higher terrain Thursday through early
Friday, with more significant snowfall forecast for the
Continental Divide. Another round of snow will return to the
Continental Divide for Saturday through Tuesday, with the focus
area expected to be the central mountains.

Breezy, warm and dry conditions will lead to increased fire
danger across the Interstate 25 corridor and portions of the
southeastern Colorado plains on Thursday.

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible through tonight along the Continental Divide.
