THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT
Rain and snow showers will develop this afternoon in the
mountains. It will be all light snow by evening and could become
heavier for a brief time this evening as a cold front moves
across. Snow accumulations up to 6 inches are possible above
9000 feet. Road conditions will likely deteriorate quickly with
the onset of more widespread and heavier snow early this evening.
There will also be a period of strong gusty downslope winds
developing in and near the Front Range Foothills this evening.
Peak gusts may reach 60 mph in wind prone areas.
Over the plains, light rain showers are possible later this
afternoon and evening with an isolated thunderstorm over the
eastern border counties early this evening.
.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY
Dry weather will return for Monday with gusty winds across the
higher terrain and plains near the Wyoming border. Fire danger
will increase in the northern Foothills and across the plains by
Tuesday and Wednesday it will be dry except for a slight chance
of snow showers in the mountains. Fire Danger will remain high
over the foothills and plains due to well above normal
temperatures and gusty winds at times. The next storm system is
expected to reach the area by Thursday. This system will bring a
good chance of snow to the mountains with a chance of rain and
snow to lower elevations along with colder temperatures.
.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be required today or tonight.
