This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Light snow will spread across the mountains this afternoon and
early evening. North facing mountain locations may see up to 6
inches of snow, but most of the mountains and high valleys will
see between 1 and 4 inches. Mountain roads will be snow packed and
slippery. In lower elevations, there is only a chance of light
snow through early evening. However, I-25 over the Palmer Divide
could see slick conditions develop for the evening commute with a
light accumulation of snow there.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Warmer than normal temperatures, low relative humidity and gusty
northerly winds will elevate the wildfire danger on the plains of
northeast Colorado during the afternoon hours on Friday, Saturday
and Sunday. Wind gusts to around 45 mph Friday afternoon may
produce high rangeland fire danger up near the Nebraska border
and along I-70 around Limon. Otherwise, the unusually dry
weather will continue through the middle of next week with
temperatures remaining several degrees above average.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
