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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Wind gusts of 25 to 30 mph will be possible this afternoon for
portions of eastern Utah and central to northern Colorado. These
winds, along with low humidities and critical fuels, will lead to
Red Flag conditions.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Critical fire weather conditions will likely persist on Friday so
a Fire Weather Watch remains in effect. Increasing moisture will
bring the potential for isolated to scattered showers and
thunderstorms back to the forecast for the weekend. Looking ahead
to early next week, a strong cold front may bring more widespread
precipitation and a significant cool down Monday into Tuesday.
