This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Southwest winds will increase this afternoon with gusts 30 to 40
mph at times. Critical fire weather conditions will occur across
portions of southeast Utah due to the combination of gusty winds
and dry conditions. Isolated to scattered storms will also occur
late afternoon into the evening, favoring the western Colorado
high terrain with gusty outflow winds the primary concern.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Dry and breezy conditions will occur behind the departing trough
Friday with scattered storms mainly along the divide and across
the north. This could lead to critical fire weather conditions
over southeast Utah on Friday.

Cooler conditions will occur this weekend behind the departing
system. Another storm moves into the Desert Southwest early to mid
next week, potentially bringing more unsettled conditions to
southeast Utah and southwest Colorado.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
