THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

There will be a slight chance of rain and snow showers over the
mountains this afternoon and tonight. The snow level will be 9 to
10 thousand feet today, lowering a little overnight. It will be
breezy today in most areas, with low humidities and elevated fire
danger in areas west and southwest of Denver.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

One more day of warm and dry weather on Thursday will elevate the
fire danger along the Palmer Divide and over portions of the
northeast plains in the afternoon. Rain and snow showers will
develop in the mountains Thursday afternoon with a slight chance
of some thunderstorms over the northeast plains, strongest closer
to the Kansas border.

Thursday night through Friday, a storm system is expected to
track slowly across Colorado. This system will bring much needed
precipitation to the region. Moderate to heavy snow will be
possible in the Front Range Mountains, Foothills and Palmer
Divide above 6500 feet, with widespread rain or a mix of rain and
snow over the northeast plains. The Front Range Mountains east of
the Continental Divide and higher foothills could see up to a foot
of snowfall by Friday afternoon, with 3 to 6 inches of snow
over the Palmer Divide, and periods of moderate to heavy rainfall
across the plains.

Precipitation will diminish Friday night with dry and warmer
weather on Saturday. The next system could bring another chance of
precipitation to the region on Sunday, then drier again Sunday
night into Monday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
