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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

NO HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS EXPECTED AS THIS TIME.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

A PROLONGED PERIOD OF SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW WILL START IN THE
MOUNTAINS LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON OR EARLY EVENING...AND THEN
CONTINUE THROUGH AT LEAST MONDAY. THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR PERIODS
OF HEAVY MOUNTAIN SNOWFALL AS EMBEDDED WEATHER DISTURBANCES MOVE
ACROSS THE STATE. HAZARDOUS WINTER TRAVEL CONDITIONS WILL DEVELOP
WITH THE ONSET OF SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW DUE TO POOR VISIBILITIES
AND SLICK ROADS ACROSS THE COLORADO HIGH COUNTRY. STORM TOTAL
ACCUMULATIONS BY LATE MONDAY OF 8 TO 16 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE IN
ELEVATIONS ABOVE 9000 FEET...WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS.

ON THE PLAINS...DRY AND MILD WEATHER SATURDAY WILL BE REPLACED BY
WINDY CONDITIONS AND COLDER TEMPERATURES BY SUNDAY. A FEW SNOW
SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE SATURDAY NIGHT WITH THE PASSAGE OF AN UPPER
LEVEL DISTURBANCE.

BY TUESDAY...EVEN STRONGER DOWNSLOPE WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN AND
NEAR THE FRONT RANGE FOOTHILLS. MEANWHILE...SNOW IS EXPECTED TO
DECREASE IN THE HIGH COUNTRY AS THE AIRMASS DRIES AND STABILIZES.

AT THIS TIME IT APPEARS THAT THERE IS ONLY A SLIGHT CHANCE OF
LIGHT SNOW FOR THANKSGIVING DAY...MAINLY IN THE MOUNTAINS.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
