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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

AREAS OF LIGHT TO MODERATE SNOWFALL IN THE HIGH COUNTRY TODAY WILL
BECOME HEAVIER AND MORE EXTENSIVE THIS EVENING...ESPECIALLY ALONG
AND NORTH OF THE INTERSTATE 70 CORRIDOR. STRONG AND GUSTY WEST WINDS

CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THROUGH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.
MOUNTAIN AREAS SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 70 ARE NOT EXPECTED TO RECEIVE
AS MUCH SNOW BUT STRONG WINDS OVERNIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY WILL
LIKELY PRODUCE QUITE A BIT OF BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW ESPECIALLY

IN THE FRONT RANGE FOOTHILLS...STRONG AND GUSTY CHINOOK WINDS ARE
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE OFF AND ON
THROUGH LATE TONIGHT. WIND GUSTS UP TO 75 MPH ARE LIKELY IN AREAS
PRONE TO HIGH WINDS. THE STRONG WINDS IN THE HIGHER FOOTHILLS
WILL CAUSE AREAS OF BLOWING SNOW WHICH MAY REDUCE VISIBILITIES.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

OCCASIONAL SNOW IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE OVER THE MOUNTAINS
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY...HEAVIEST ON WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY
EVENING. DRIER WEATHER IS EXPECTED FOR THE MOUNTAINS FOR THIS
WEEKEND. THE PLAINS WILL BE MAINLY DRY...BUT THERE IS SLIGHT
