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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

GUSTY WESTERLY WINDS WILL INCREASE OVER THE MOUNTAIN PASSES AND
EXPOSED HIGHER FOOTHILLS LATER THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT. EXPECT
SPEEDS INCREASING TO 50 TO 70 MPH BY TONIGHT.  MOISTURE WILL ALSO
INCREASE OVER THE MOUNTAINS TONIGHT WITH AREAS OF LIGHT SNOW
DEVELOPING. ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE LIGHT...GENERALLY AROUND AN INCH
OR LESS BY DAYBREAK MONDAY.

ACROSS LOWER ELEVATIONS...MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES AND WARMER TODAY WITH
READINGS IN THE MID TO UPPER 40S.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

STRONG WINDS AND SNOW WILL CONTINUE OVER THE HIGH COUNTRY MONDAY
MORNING, CREATING HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS IN BLOWING SNOW.
GUSTS OF 60 TO 70 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE IN THE HIGHER FOOTHILLS AND
FRONT RANGE MOUNTAINS. A COLD FRONT WILL PUSH SOUTH ON MONDAY
WITH LITTLE TO NO PRECIPITATION OVER THE PLAINS EXPECTED, WHILE
2 TO 6 INCHES OF SNOW MAY FALL OVER THE MOUNTAINS.

A STRONGER SYSTEM WILL PUSH IN TUESDAY FOR HEAVIER SNOW TO FALL OVER
THE MOUNTAINS AND THEN SPREAD ACROSS THE PLAINS. WINDS WILL BE
LESS HOWEVER, BUT BANDING COULD PRODUCE MORE HAZARDOUS TRAVEL
CONDITIONS DUE TO LOW VISIBILITY IN THE HEAVIER SNOW BANDS. 4 TO
10 INCHES MAY FALL OVER THE MOUNTAINS WHILE 2 TO 4 INCHES MAY FALL
OVER THE PLAINS. ANOTHER BIG IMPACT WILL BE COLDER TEMPERATURES
TUESDAY, AND EVEN MORE SO FOR WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY WHEN SKIES
CLEAR, WITH READINGS 20 TO 30 DEGREES COLDER THAN AVERAGE.

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY WILL WARM BACK UP TO NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES
WITH ANOTHER SYSTEM TO BRING BACK THE CHANCE FOR MORE
PRECIPITATION.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
