URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
216 PM MDT Tue Apr 10 2018

...FIRE DANGER INCREASES WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...

.Critical fire danger will develop across the Front Range
Foothills, Park County, and all of the plains on Wednesday as
warmer temperatures combine with gusty winds and very low
humidities.

Fire danger may become extreme in some areas by Thursday as winds
continue to strengthen in a very warm and dry airmass. The
highest danger on Thursday will likely develop from South Park
and the Southern Foothills across the Palmer Divide area.
Critical conditions will be possible farther north, but
confidence is not as high north of I-76.
