This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...east
central...south central and southeast Colorado.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Widespread critical fire weather conditions are expected across
all of south central and southeast Colorado today, as westerly
winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts between 40 and 50 mph spread
across the area through the early evening. These strong winds,
combined with near record warm temperatures, low humidity values
and persistent dry conditions, will create conditions favorable
for extreme fire behavior, with rapid rates of growth and spread,
should a fire start. Please use extreme caution to avoid any fire
starts today.

A passing weather system across the northern Rockies tonight will
bring chances for snow showers across the higher terrain of the
central mountains later tonight. This system will also send a strong
cold front across the eastern plains early Friday morning

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

A late season snowstorm is possible midday Friday through
Saturday. The best chances for significant snow accumulations are
in Teller and northern El Paso Counties. Significant snowfall is
also possible for Lake County and the mountains of Chaffee
County. Some snow accumulations are possible over the eastern
mountains and Interstate 25 corridor with snow levels lowering to
around 5500 feet.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be possible over portions of the region.
