Critical fire weather conditions will develop across southeast
Utah and portions of west-central and northwest Colorado this
afternoon and will persist into the evening. Consequently, a Red
Flag Warning is in effect from noon through 8 PM this evening for
those areas. Meanwhile, isolated high based thunderstorms are
possible along the Continental Divide which will generate outflow
winds to 40 mph but little rain.

Hot, dry and breezy conditions are expected to redevelop Wednesday
and Thursday bringing the potential for critical fire weather
conditions both days. A Fire Weather Watch has been issued from

central Utah along with west-central and northwest Colorado.
Additional highlights may be forthcoming Thursday.

Otherwise, isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are
expected each day, mainly over the mountains of the Continental
Divide. This activity is likely to continue to generate more wind
than rain.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
