...RED FLAG WARNING PARK COUNTY AND SOUTHERN FOOTHILLS LATE THIS MORNING THROUGH EARLY EVENING...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

High fire danger will exist across south park and the southern foothills due to low humidity and gusty winds. Otherwise it will be dry except for a slight chance of late afternoon and early evening thunderstorms in the mountains and across the far northeast plains.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Temperatures will peak around seasonal normals Saturday afternoon after a surge of dry and cooler air moves in from the north late tonight. On Sunday, an upper level weather disturbance will be crossing over the state, producing showers and thunderstorms over the mountains that spread onto the plains Sunday night and Monday morning. The showers are not expected to produce any hazardous weather. Dry and warmer weather are expected to return next week beneath a strong ridge of high pressure. Sub-tropical moisture increasing under the ridge late in the week will bring afternoon showers back into the forecast on Thursday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
