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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

For the plains freezing drizzle will change over to light snow
and continue through the evening. Amounts around and south of I-70
will be 1 to 2 inches by Friday morning with 4 to 7 further north
closer to the Wyoming border. A winter weather advisory will
continue through the day to account for hazardous conditions from
ice and accumulating snow. Over the mountains light snow will
continue through the evening into the morning hours on Friday with
8 to 14 inches possible. Higher amounts will be over west facing
slopes with 5 to 8 inches over the western foothills.
Temperatures will stay around freezing with upper 40s over
southern Lincoln county. Overnight lows will drop into the teens
aiding in creating ice on roadways for morning commuters. Caution
is advised for travelers today through tomorrow morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

Light snowfall in the mountains on Friday will decrease
overnight with another few inches of snow possible in the
northern mountain ranges. There is also a change of light snow
on the plains on Friday, mainly across the northeast corner of
the state. Any accumulation there should be light. Snowfall may
again develop in the high country Saturday night and continue
through Sunday morning with another few inches of snow possible on
higher west facing slopes. Whereas areas east of the mountains
should be mild and dry over the weekend. Yet another storm system
moving out of the Great Basin may bring another round of snow to
the mountains and rain and snow to the high valleys Tuesday and
Wednesday. There is a chance that the Front Range foothills and
adjacent plains could also see some rain and snow on Wednesday.
Significant snow accumulations are not expected at this time.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Reports of snowfall or strong winds will be appreciated.
