This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

No hazardous weather expected. This afternoon, an isolated shower
cannot be ruled out for the Park County area; otherwise, mostly
sunny skies and a gradual warming trend will continue for the
entire region. Breezy winds gusts up to 20-25 mph will occur for
the far northeastern plains this afternoon. Tonight, near normal
temperatures for all areas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

A wetter pattern begins Friday as scattered thunderstorms are
expected across the region bringing a low threat for flash
flooding over the burn areas. Better moisture may enter the region
this weekend increasing storm coverage, mainly over the higher
terrain. In combination with slower moving storms (some capable of
producing heavy rainfall), there will be a threat for flash
flooding over the burn areas.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.

Adams, Broomfield, Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties

WHEN...400 PM Wednesday August 17 to 400 PM Thursday August 18

IMPACTS...Ozone Action Day Alert is now in effect for the Front
Range Urban Corridor. Requests to limit driving of non-ZEV
vehicles (i.e., gas or diesel) are now in effect until at least 4
p.m. Thursday, August 18, 2022.  Ozone concentrations are expected
to reach the Moderate to Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups range on

southern and western portions of the Denver Metro Area, including
Highlands Ranch and Golden.For areas included in this advisory
that are not expected to reach the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups

driving non-ZEV vehicles (i.e., gas or diesel), be reduced to
lessen the impacts on neighboring air quality. Additional air
pollution in this region may directly worsen air quality or
contribute to precursors which may also adversely affect air
quality.  For Colorado air quality conditions, forecasts and
advisories, visit:
