URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Denver CO
949 AM MST Sun Mar 4 2018

...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS EXPECTED THROUGH MONDAY...
.Warm, dry and very windy conditions during the afternoon and
early evening hours today ahead of and behind a strong cold front
will again produce critical wildfire conditions. A cold front will
drop temperatures but increase the northwest winds on Monday,
leading to another day of critical fire weather conditions.

Today southwest winds ahead of the front will shift to the
west/northwest and increase with gusts to around 45 mph as the
front sweeps across the plains late in the afternoon. The shifting
winds may produce erratic fire behavior and growth of any
existing fires.

On Monday despite cooler temperatures, very strong and gusty
northwest winds combined with low relative humidity will again
produce high fire danger on the plains. The strongest winds should
occur across the northeast quarter of Colorado, generally east of
a Greeley to Limon line. Winds all across the Plains will be
strong enough to meet red flag criteria and as a result, a red
flag warning has been issued for the plains of northeast Colorado.
