This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered thunderstorms developing this afternoon will be capable
of producing damaging winds. Wind gusts as high as 80 mph can be
expected from the stronger severe storms, possibly resulting in
property damage and dangerous travel conditions. High profile
vehicles should not travel this afternoon, while others should
remain aware for very strong cross winds and areas of blowing
dust. Visibility may be suddenly reduced near open fields.

Outside of the thunderstorms, gusty winds of 45 to 60 mph will
develop in all areas this afternoon. The strongest of these more
persistent winds are expected to develop over the Palmer Divide
and just east of the I-25 Corridor.

Fire danger will also be very high over the eastern plains and
Palmer Divide as high winds combine with unseasonably warm
temperatures. Avoid burning or any outdoor activity that may
produce sparks, as rapid fire growth is possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

The plains will see very warm temperatures and gusty south winds
increasing by late Sunday morning which will raise fire danger
again to critical levels through early Sunday evening. Wind gusts
up to 50 mph are expected Sunday while humidity levels will be
under 15 percent. Conditons will be drier with no thunderstorms

On Monday, another upper level weather disturbance will be
passing over the northern half of Colorado with showers and
thunderstorms over the mountains moving out onto the plains in the
afternoon. Some thunderstorms may become severe Monday afternoon
over northern sections.

Cooler temperatures are expected through the middle part of next
week with a little less thunderstorm activity for Tuesday and


Spotter activation is not anticipated today and tonight. However,
any reports of strong wind gusts or wind damage will be
