This hazardous weather outlook is for east central Colorado...
extreme southwest Nebraska and northwest Kansas.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT...

Light to moderate snow with some blowing snow is expected through
this afternoon. Accumulations of 1 to 5 inches are possible through
the afternoon, mainly on grassy or elevated surfaces. The highest
amounts should remain south of Interstate 70 and west of highway 83
through this afternoon.

A band of heavy wet snow will develop this evening and overspread
the entire region tonight. Winds will increase after midnight and
combine with this heavy snow to reduce visibilities below one half
mile at times due to blowing snow. Snowfall amounts this evening and
tonight will range from 3 to 6 inches. Heaviest amounts will be in
northwest Kansas and southwest Nebraska tonight. Road closures and
power outages will be possible after midnight tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...

Heavy snow will continue to impact locations mainly in northwest
Kansas and southwest Nebraska through midday Sunday before decreasing
in coverage or changing to rain Sunday afternoon and evening. Strong
winds gusting to 55 mph may combine with this snow to reduce
visibilities in blowing snow. Total snow accumulations from Saturday
through Sunday in areas under a Winter Storm Warning will range from
6 to 12 inches. Locally higher amounts will be possible in northwest
Kansas.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed. Reports of snow accumulations
and reduced visibilities would be appreciated.
