I guess WxGeek is out this week, so I will attempt to fill his shoes with some weather info.....

Fire Danger for all Fire Districts is HIGH

Synopsis: Good morning and welcome to Monday and another fine summer day with warm temps in the 80’s & 90’s, RH in the lower teens. Fire danger is still elevated with the warm temps and dry conditions. I see that Elk Creek had a small wildland fire in Staunton Park caused by an unattended camp fire (illegal), so yes it does not take much for the 1 hour fuels to ignite.

There is a slight chance for a late day shower or thunderstorm over the mountains, and across the plains from Fort Collins to Sterling and points north to the Wyoming border.

The long-term outlook through Friday: Elevated fire danger will continue on Tuesday due to well above normal temperatures and very dry conditions. Winds will also begin to increase over the higher terrain. There could be an isolated shower or storm in the mountains, but very little rain will occur.
On Wednesday moisture will begin to increase in southwest flow aloft as a cool front moves into northeast Colorado. As a result, fire danger will decrease over most of the area except for northwest portions of the higher terrain where gusty winds will occur. Meanwhile there will be a chance of afternoon and evening showers and a few storms.

For Thursday and Friday, it will be dry with temperatures closer to seasonal levels. Elevated fire danger will likely redevelop over much of the higher terrain.

Watches & Warnings
None expected.

Hazardous Weather Outlook for today and tonight: Continued very warm and mainly dry conditions today across Northern Colorado which will keep the fire danger elevated today. There could be an isolated high based shower or thunderstorm over the higher terrain and across the plains from Fort Collins to Sterling and points to the north. Expect gusty winds up to 45 mph with the light showers.

For Tuesday through Sunday: Tuesday will be mainly dry with another day of well above normal temperatures and elevated fire danger. Moisture will increase on Wednesday which may lead to a chance of afternoon and evening showers and storms over portions of the higher terrain and plains.
For Thursday and Friday it will be mainly dry with temperatures closer to seasonal levels.
