...Red Flag Warning for South Park, southeast Elbert and Lincoln counties late Thursday morning through early Thursday evening...
This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight
No hazardous weather is expected at this time. An upper level ridge will be in place over Colorado today with warming westerly winds aloft. Temperatures will be unseasonably warm across northeast Colorado. Over the mountains, increasing moisture at mid and upper levels will feed some afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. Brief rain and gusty winds are all that should result. Additional showers and thunderstorms are possible along and east of the Palmer Divide and Cheyenne Ridge during the late
afternoon and early evening hours.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday Gusty winds and low humidity will lead to critical fire danger over South park, southeast Elbert and southern Lincoln counties Thursday afternoon. Otherwise there will be a slight chance of thunderstorms over the far northeast plains late in the afternoon into the evening hours. One or two storms could be severe. A storm system will develop over the Great Basin Friday into Saturday as a cold front moves across northeast Colorado. This will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Friday afternoon into Friday evening. A few severe storms could occur across the northeast plains.
This unsettled pattern will persist through the middle of next week. Each day will feature a chance of showers and thunderstorms primarily in the afternoon and evening.
