This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

This week`s warming trend will peak today with temperatures
rising well above seasonal normals on the plains and in the
mountians. Fire danger levels will be elevated on the plains
because of temperatures in the 70s and relative humidities
dropping into the teens. However, winds will be light, so
dangerous fire behavior is not expected. Moisture will be
increasing over the mountains this afternoon with rain showers and
a few thunderstorms possible by evening. Rain will change to snow
by midnight with the heaviest accumulations expected over Rabbit
Ears Pass and the Gore and Park Ranges where accumulations of 2
to 4 inches are expected. The mountains of Summit County will only
receive a couple inches of snow.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Mountain areas will see a mix of rain and snow on Friday as an
upper level weather disturbance moves across the area. Additional
accumulations of 2 to 5 inches will be possible in some areas.

On the plains, it will remain warm on Friday with elevated Fire
Danger over Lincoln county. There will be a chance of afternoon
showers and a few thunderstorms mainly over the far northeast

After dry conditions on Saturday, more moisture will begin moving
into the mountains on Sunday with a chance of showers by afternoon.
Unsettled weather is expected for early next week with an
increasing chance of precipitation along with cooler


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
