...STRONG WINTER STORM MOVING INTO THE COLORADO MOUNTAINS
FRIDAY...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

Dry warm and breezy weather is expected today with elevated fire
danger in some areas. Snow showers will develop in the northern

Ridges and higher west facing mountain slopes generally north of
Interstate 70 could see up to 4 inches of wet snow by dawn Friday
morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

A strong Pacific storm system moving across the Rocky Mountains
is expected to bring snow, strong winds and much colder

the mountains could be heavy at times Friday afternoon and

with poor travel conditions. Snowfall amounts of 1 to 2 feet are
expected over the Rabbit Ears Pass area, while significant
accumulations are also possible from Rocky Mountain National Park
down through Summit County.

On the plains, scattered rain and snow showers can be expected
Friday night with the passage of a strong surface cold front.
Wind gusts of 30 to 50 mph will be possible over the plains
Friday evening behind the front. Any snow accumulation should be
minor and confined to areas near the foothills and on the Palmer
Divide.
