This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow showers lingering in the Front Range mountains and foothills
will continue to diminish in coverage and intensity during the
day as the latest storm system over eastern Colorado slowly moves
over western Kansas by this evening. Higher elevations of the
Front Range mountains and foothills could see another 1 to 4
inches of wet snow today...mainly north of Interstate 70. There is
also a continued chance of showers on the plains today. Showers
will mainly be rain, however the heavier showers across the
northeast corner of the state later this afternoon and early this
evening could change to all snow, with a quick inch or two of wet
snow possible on grassy surfaces.

Mountain travelers should anticipate wet and possibly slushy
roads today, especially in areas east of the Divide. The recent
heavy wet snowfall in the high country may also cause spotty rock
slides that could impede travel at times, according to the
Colorado Department of Transportation. Spotty power outages are
still possible as well.

Tonight, clearing skies late tonight will allow temperatures on
the plains to fall below freezing. This could injure or kill
tender outdoor plants. A freeze warning has been issued for the
lower elevations of northeast Colorado.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

The mountains can expect widely scattered late day showers and
thunderstorms on Saturday. An unsettled pattern returns Sunday
through Tuesday with a chance of precipitation over much of the
forecast area all three days. There could be a few late day
thunderstorms as well. Drier and warmer weather will return for
Wednesday and Thursday.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. However,
any snowfall reports will be greatly appreciated.
