This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Rain and snow showers will increase this afternoon with snow levels
around 7500 feet. A few weak thunderstorms will be possible as
well. A cold front will push south across the area late this
afternoon with northerly winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40
mph. Northerly upslope flow will bring widespread precipitation
over the Palmer Divide, and colder temperatures will allow for a
changeover to snow with up to 2 inches expected this evening.
Elsewhere, higher east facing slopes of the Front Range mountains
could see 2 to 6 inches of snow by Wednesday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

The next upper level disturbance will approach the area Wednesday
night and Thursday, bringing a round of accumulating snow and
winter travel conditions to the mountains. On the plains, a few
rain showers can be expected along with a couple thunderstorms.

By Friday and Saturday, another but potentially stronger storm
system is expected to drop toward the Four Corners region.
Temperatures will be turning colder with most of the precipitation
from this storm system falling in the form of snow. Some
accumulation is possible down into the lower elevations of the
plains. Below freezing temperatures are likely Friday night and
Saturday night.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
