THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES AND ANOTHER DAY OF ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES
CAN BE EXPECTED. FIRE DANGER WILL BE ELEVATED FROM THE PALMER
DIVIDE INTO ELBERT AND LINCOLN COUNTIES WHERE SOUTHERLY WINDS
GRADUALLY INCREASE TODAY. A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE OVER COLORADO
WILL BRING THE MILD AND DRY WEATHER THROUGH TONIGHT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

TUESDAY IS EXPECTED TO BE WARM AND BREEZY...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE
EASTERN PLAINS. THIS MAY CAUSE CRITICAL FIRE DANGER CONDITIONS...
MAINLY OVER ELBERT...LINCOLN AND EASTERN ADAMS AND ARAPAHOE
COUNTIES WHERE A FIRE WEATHER WATCH IS IN EFFECT TUESDAY
AFTERNOON.

THERE IS STILL MUCH UNCERTAINTY REGARDING THE NEXT STORM SYSTEM
THAT IS EXPECTED TO IMPACT THE CENTRAL ROCKIES THE LATTER HALF OF
THE WEEK. IT SEEMS LIKE A PRETTY GOOD BET THAT MOST AREAS WILL SEE
COOLER TEMPERATURES AND SOME PRECIPITATION IN THE WEDNESDAY
THROUGH FRIDAY TIME FRAME. HOWEVER WITH THE TRACK AND SPEED OF
THE DEVELOPING SYSTEM STILL NOT CLEAR AT THIS POINT...FORECAST
DETAILS OF THE EVENT NECESSARILY CANNOT BE PROVIDED WITH A HIGH
DEGREE OF CONFIDENCE.

IF THE SYSTEM DEVELOPS FAVORABLY...SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION...
MUCH OF WHICH COULD BE SNOW...WILL FALL ACROSS MOST OF THE OUTLOOK
AREA WITH UPSLOPE-FAVORED LOCATIONS IN AND NEAR THE FOOTHILLS
SEEING THE LARGEST PRECIPITATION AMOUNTS. AGAIN...FORECAST
CONFIDENCE REMAINS LOW TO MODEST AT THIS TIME.

THE FORECAST FOR THE WEEKEND DEPENDS ON THE MOVEMENT OF THE
INCOMING STORM BUT AT THIS POINT IT APPEARS THAT WARMER AND DRIER
CONDITIONS SHOULD BEGIN OVERSPREADING THE AREA DURING THE WEEKEND.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
