.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Critical fire weather conditions will develop across southeast
Utah and portions of west-central and northwest Colorado this
afternoon and will persist into the evening. Consequently, a Red
Flag Warning remains in effect from 11 AM this morning through 8
PM this evening for those areas. Meanwhile, isolated high based
thunderstorms are possible along the Continental Divide which will
generate outflow winds to 40 mph but little rain.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Hot, dry and breezy conditions are expected to redevelop Thursday
and critical fire weather conditions may redevelop as a result. A
Fire Weather Watch has been issued from 1100 Thursday morning
through 8 PM Thursday evening for northwest and a portion of west-
central Colorado.

Otherwise, isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are
expected each day, mainly over the mountains of the Continental
Divide. This activity is likely to continue to generate more wind
than rain.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
