...CRITICAL FIRE DANGER AND HIGH WINDS THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH
LATE TONIGHT FOR THE FAR EASTERN PLAINS...
...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY UNTIL MIDNIGHT TONIGHT FOR THE PARK
AND GORE RANGES...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Critical fire danger conditions will exist across the east-
central plains this afternoon due to warm, dry, and windy
conditions. Gusts could reach 40 mph with relative humidity
dropping to 15 percent. Snow showers are expected over the high
country from late this morning through tonight. The highest snow
totals will be over the Park and Gore ranges. Slick and snow-
covered roads will create poor travel conditions across the high
mountain passes. Rain showers and a few thunderstorms are possible
across the plains this afternoon and evening. High winds gusting
up to 60 mph will be possible across the eastern plains this
evening and overnight tonight.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

It will still be windy on Wednesday, with peak gusts of 30 to 40
mph on the plains and valleys and up to 50 mph in the higher
mountains and Front Range foothills. After a few warmer and dry
days, colder weather will return Sunday and Monday with a chance
of mountain snow and lower elevation rain by Sunday evening, and a
chance of snow on the plains by Monday morning.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
