Air Quality Alert

410 PM MDT Sun Sep 27 2020


The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Air Quality Health Advisory for Wildfire Smoke.

WHERE...Jackson and Larimer counties. Locations include, but are
not limited to Walden, Cowdrey, Red Feather Lakes, Rustic, and

WHEN...900 AM Sunday September 27 to 900 AM Monday September 28

IMPACTS...Increased fire activity at the  Mullen, and Cameron Peak
wildfires will result in periods of moderate to heavy smoke at
times across the advisory area. Winds near these fires will come
from the northwest throughout the day on Sunday, transporting
smoke to areas to the southeast of the fires locations. The
heaviest smoke is expected for locations in areas near the fires
at lower elevations, particularly during overnight and early
morning hours. However, all areas downwind of these fires may be
impacted by periods of moderate to heavy smoke on Sunday and
Monday.  Note: The Mullen wildfire in south-central Wyoming and
the Cameron Peak wildfire in western Larimer County may bring
heavy smoke to parts of the Front Range on Sunday and Monday.
However, affected locations in the Colorado Front Range are
currently covered by an advisory under the regulatory Action Day
program. For more information:

HEALTH INFORMATION...Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is
thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain
indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease,
respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. Consider
limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present.
Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is
making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in
your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Much cooler temperatures can be expected today in the wake of
a strong cold front that moved across the area this morning.
Isolated to scattered light rain showers can be expected as well,
with the best chance over the northeast plains. Wind gusts up to
45 mph are possible across the mountains and foothills this
afternoon. North to northeast winds 15 to 30 mph will persist over
the urban corridor and northeast plains, with the strongest gusts
expected east of Interstate 25. Areas of smoke from the fires will
also occur, mainly west of the I-25 corridor into the foothills.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

There will be increased fire weather concerns across the plains
both Monday and Tuesday due to gusty northwesterly wind and low
humidity. Gusts of 20 to 35 mph and humidity of 12 to 20 percent
will occur. At this time, criteria does not look to be reached,
but it will be close.

Otherwise, no hazardous weather is expected through the week as
Colorado stays under a dry northwesterly flow aloft.


Spotter activation will not be needed today and tonight.
