...RED FLAG WARNING FOR SOUTH PARK FROM NOON UNTIL 9 PM TODAY AND
AGAIN ON SUNDAY...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Record or near record heat will occur today. Caution is advised
if planning outdoor activities this hot Memorial Day Weekend.
Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, and use sunscreen or loose
clothing to protect yourself from the intense sunshine.

In addition, the heat will combine with a very dry airmass to
produce critical fire danger over much of Park County where the
spring green-up has been minimal.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms for the northeast
corner of Colorado Sunday afternoon and evening. Large hail and
damaging winds will be possible with isolated supercell
thunderstorms. Heavy rainfall and an isolated tornado or two will
also be possible. Otherwise, there is a chance of thunderstorms in
the mountains on Sunday and across the outlook area Tuesday and
Wednesday. The risk of severe weather may be much lower Tuesday
and Wednesday due to greater cloud cover and cooler temperatures.
Rest of the week will be warmer and drier with just a slight
chance of late day thunderstorms in the high country each day.

In addition, very warm, dry and gusty southwest winds will produce
high to extreme wildfire danger Sunday afternoon and evening for
South Park, southwest of Denver. The fire danger should quickly
decrease overnight with falling temperatures and rising humidities.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today.
