...WINDY CONDITIONS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL LEAD TO CRITICAL
FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS TODAY...

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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Strong winds will impact the northern mountains today with gusts
up to 65 mph, with gusts to 50 mph in the foothills. This could
result in extreme fire behavior for the Cameron Peak Fire. Across
the foothills, South Park, and plains, wind gusts may reach 40 mph
as relative humidities drop to as low as 10 percent. This will
lead to critical fire danger across those areas. Otherwise, dry
and unseasonably warm temperatures this afternoon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Colder temperatures are expected Sunday as a strong cold front
pushes south across the area. Light rain showers are expected
across much of the area Sunday afternoon and evening with light
snow possible in the mountains and higher foothills. Snow levels
fall to 7000 feet MSL by Sunday evening. Any snowfall is expected
to be light and less than 2 inches.

Otherwise, no hazardous weather is expected Monday through
Friday.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today and tonight.

Air Quality Alert

COC115-075-123-069-057-271500-
Sedgwick-Logan-Weld-Larimer-Jackson-
710 PM MDT Sat Sep 26 2020

...AIR QUALITY HEALTH ADVISORY FOR WILDFIRE SMOKE FROM 900 AM
SATURDAY UNTIL 900 AM SUNDAY...

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

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

WHERE...Routt, Jackson, Larimer, Weld, Logan, and Sedgwick
counties. Locations include, but are not limited to Steamboat
Springs, Clark, Walden, Cowdrey, Red Feather Lakes, Rustic,
Wellington, Fort Collins, Greeley, Sterling, and Julesburg.

WHEN...900 AM Saturday September 26 to 900 AM Sunday September 27

IMPACTS...Increased fire activity at the Middle Fork, 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 west throughout the day on Saturday and
overnight Saturday night, transporting smoke to areas to the east
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 Saturday and Sunday.

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.
