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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Critical fire weather conditions will be reached across most of
south central and southeast Colorado today.  Despite wetting
precipitation in some areas last night, most of that moisture is
expected to evaporate by this afternoon as strong winds and low
humidities sweep across the region.  Outdoor burning or any other
activities that could accidentally start a wildfire should be
postponed today.

Light snow is falling along the Continental Divide this morning.
Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are expected this morning before
ending around noon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Critical fire weather conditions will be possible across the far
southeast Colorado Plains Saturday afternoon.

Another storm system will bring a round of snow to the higher
terrain along and west of the Continental Divide late Saturday
night and through the day Sunday, with light to moderate snow
accumulations possible. This fast moving system will bring a
chance of rain showers, and higher elevation snow showers to the
rest of the higher terrain Sunday, and to the Eastern Plains
late Sunday afternoon through Sunday night, with the potential
for wind driven snow along the Palmer Divide. The quick movement
of this system is expected to limit the amount of precipitation
across Southeast Colorado.


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