This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for northwest Colorado, southwest
Colorado, west central Colorado, east central Utah, northeast Utah
and southeast Utah.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

Showers and thunderstorms across the south this morning will diminish
before midday. Apart from some isolated storms over the northern
mountains this afternoon, dry weather will prevail area-wide. Gusty
southwest winds paired with humidities in the teens will lead to
areas of near-critical fire weather conditions this afternoon,
favoring the Four Corners region. Tonight will see showers and a few
embedded storms persist across northeast Utah and portions of
northwest Colorado into sunrise. Light snow will also fall over the
Eastern Uinta Mountains overnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Gusty southwest winds and dry conditions will produce periods of
localized near-critical fire weather conditions in the Four Corners
area and the lower valleys along and south of the I-70 corridor
Friday afternoon. Expect another round of scattered showers and
thunderstorms across the northern areas on Friday as a system lifts
overhead. Light winds and dry conditions under high pressure returns
for the weekend and next week.


Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
