This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Freezing temperatures in the high valleys of northwest Colorado
and the Colorado River basin will continue to pose a threat to
sensitive vegetation early this morning. This threat will end by
mid-morning as temperatures rise above freezing. Otherwise,
critical fire weather will be the primary impact today across
east-central Utah, southeast Utah and portions of southwest
Colorado. A Red Flag Warning is in effect. Isolated to scattered
rain/snow showers will linger off an on across the higher terrain
of northeast Utah and the Continental Divide through the day and
night. Any additional snow accumulations will be light with
limited impacts to travel.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Risks for gusty afternoon winds and localized critical fire
weather will remain through mid-week as multiple disturbances
pass through eastern Utah and western Colorado. Off and on showers
will persist across the high terrain, favoring the Continental
Divide, through Tuesday. A warming trend then begins for Wednesday
and beyond with temperatures climbing back to well above seasonal
norms. A strong Pacific storm is then likely to crash into the
Pacific Northwest and northern Rockies Friday into Saturday. This
will result in a tightening pressure gradient across the Four
Corners and a heightened potential for more widespread strong
winds and critical fire weather.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
