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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Very warm and dry conditions, combined with gusty west winds,
will lead to critical fire danger across the mountains, high
mountain valleys and foothills this afternoon. Winds could gust
to 40 mph, and RH should drop below 15 percent. Conditions are
favorable for rapid fire growth this afternoon across north
central Colorado.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Warm and dry conditions are expected to continue Saturday,
leading to areas of critical fire danger. The greatest threat
will be across the northern plains where wind gusts may reach up
to 35 mph. Another area of concern will the South Park and the
southern foothills where gusts will be between 25 and 30 mph.

Cooling temperatures are expected Sunday as a strong cold front
pushes south across the area, which will help ease fire danger
levels. Light rain is expected across much of the area Sunday
afternoon and evening with light snow possible in the mountains.
Snow levels will be lowering to near 8000 ft by late afternoon north
of I70, continuing south through the evening over areas south of
I70. Snowfall accumulations will be less than one inch and travel
impacts should be very minimal. No hazardous weather is expected
Monday through Thursday.


Spotter activation will not be needed today and tonight.
