This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of north central
Colorado and northeast Colorado.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Snow will begin this afternoon along the I-25 northern urban
corridor and spread east. Precipitation is forecast to begin as
freezing drizzle in northeast Colorado. Heavy snowfall rates will
cause difficult travel in eastern Larimer and Weld counties, and
could affect the evening commute. In northeast Colorado the
precipitation will begin as freezing drizzle, and a glaze of ice
on roadways will also cause difficult travel conditions.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Across the far northeast corner of Colorado, light snowfall
should wrap up by mid-morning Saturday where little additional
accumulation is expected. However roads in the area will likely be
icy and possibly snow covered until noon. Light upslope snowfall
will also linger through Saturday morning in mountain areas,
generally along and west of the Continental Divide. Additional
snow amounts by midday will generally be under 2 inches on higher
west slopes. Otherwise, it will be drier and slightly warmer on
Saturday with gusty northwest winds of 25 to 40 mph on the plains,
and 30 to 55 mph in the Front Range mountains and foothills which
could cause some blowing snow.

The mountains and high valleys will likely see another round of
snow Saturday night and Sunday with the next quick hitting
Pacific storm system. Snow accumulations should generally be on
the light side, but some of the higher west facing slopes and
passes could possibly pick up 3 to 6 inches of snow by Sunday
afternoon. The plains should be dry with a slow warming trend
through early next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Reports of ice accumulations and snow fall amounts is appreciated.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central
Colorado, north-central Colorado, and east central Colorado.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Snow this afternoon will become more widespread, and although
light could affect the late evening commute. Overall 1 to 3 inches
of snow is forecast across the region. Travelers should be
prepared for winter travel conditions late Friday afternoon
through Friday night. Snowpacked and slippery roads will make for
difficult travel conditions.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Across the far northeast corner of Colorado, light snowfall
should wrap up by mid-morning Saturday where little additional
accumulation is expected. However roads in the area will likely be
icy and possibly snow covered until noon. Light upslope snowfall
will also linger through Saturday morning in mountain areas,
