This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Winds will increase today as the surface pressure gradient
tightens ahead of an area of low pressure. These winds, along with
dry fuels and low humidities, will create critical fire weather
conditions so a Red Flag Warning has been issued. Outside of that,
mostly sunny skies, gusty winds, and warm temperatures are
expected today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday
The chance for afternoon and evening thunderstorms will increase
Friday through next Tuesday as two Pacific storms affect much of
the western U.S.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
