This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Light snow will be possible over the northern mountains late this
afternoon and tonight as a system moves across Wyoming. Winds
will increase late tonight behind the exiting system in the
mountains and foothills where gusts as high as 65 to 85 mph will
be possible in areas prone to high wind.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Very strong west winds in the Front Range mountains and foothills
will ease some during the day Saturday only to strengthen again
Saturday night. Wind gusts from 65 to 80 mph will be possible in
areas prone to high winds, such as open terrain above timberline
and east slopes of the Front Range generally above 9000 feet.
These fierce mountain winds may produce near white out conditions
at times in open areas.

After a dry and very mild weekend, another Pacific storm system
is expected to bring snow and much colder temperatures to the
outlook area Monday and Tuesday. It`s possible that temperatures
on the plains Tuesday may not reach the 20 degree mark. Snow
amounts with this storm still remain uncertain at this time. Dry
and warmer weather should then return to the outlook area
Wednesday and Thursday.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. However,
any reports of snow accumulation would be appreciated.
