...High winds over the eastern plains with critical fire danger
and areas of blowing dust..

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

High winds will blow over the eastern two-thirds of the plains
this afternoon. Wind gusts from 55 to 70 mph will occur in some
areas creating blowing dust and reduced visibilities. Tree limbs
could be blown down and a few power outages may result. Travel
will be difficult for high profile vehicles. The strong winds are
expected to slowly decrease this afternoon. In addition, critical
fire danger will exist over the eastern plains, due to the high
winds and very low relative humidity levels.

Over the higher terrain, very windy conditions will occur this
morning, with gusts from 60 to 80 mph above 11000 feet. A few
gusts from 60 to 70 mph may also occur in the foothills. Wind
speeds should decrease by midday. Blowing snow is expected in snow
covered areas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Light snow is likely in the mountains Saturday. It will still be
windy over the ridges and east slopes and on the northeast plains,
but not as much as on Friday. On Sunday, the winds will be even
lighter on the plains, but it will still be windy in the Front
Range mountains and foothills. A series of weak weather systems
will move through next week. There will be occasional light snow
in the mountains. The greatest chance of snow for the plains will
be Monday night into Tuesday morning, when light snow is possible,
mainly near the mountains. Temperatures will remain seasonally
cool through the week.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight, but wind
reports will be appreciated.
