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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Thunderstorms return across southeast Utah and southwest Colorado
this afternoon. These storms will be high based, producing
lightning and strong gusty outflow winds. Given the extremely dry
vegetation, this activity is likely to spark new fires and
exacerbate those already burning. Therefore, a Red Flag Warning
remains in effect for the region from noon to 9 PM MDT this
evening. To the north, strong gusty winds and low relative
humidity are expected to lead to extreme fire behavior and a
separate Red Flag Warning has been issued for the Elkhead, Park
and portions of the Flat Tops from noon to 7 PM MDT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Thunderstorms become more widespread Thursday and Friday, though
they will become more efficient rain producers as moisture deepens
across the region. Afternoon and evening thunderstorms are
expected to develop each day over the mountains, mainly along the
Continental Divide this weekend and early next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
