...Winter storm Warning for the Southern Front Range Foothills
and Palmer Divide tonight...
...Winter Weather Advisory for the Northern Front Range Foothills
and Front Range Mountains tonight...

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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

The next in a series of Pacific storm systems will move slowly
across the region today and tonight. Expect it to produce
snow...heavy at times...on the east face of the Front Range
mountains and foothills, and light to moderate rainfall on the
plains of northeast Colorado. As temperatures fall tonight,
expect a mix of rain and snow between 5200 to 6200 feet. Snow
accumulations by morning will range from 4 to 12 inches in the
mountains, foothills and Palmer Divide, and up to 3 inches near
the base of the foothills and south side of the Denver metro area.
The plains could receive anywhere from one-quarter to three-
quarter inch of beneficial rainfall with this storm. Motorists
should prepare with hazardous winter driving conditions if heading
into the high country and over the Palmer Divide during the next
24 hours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

A weakening storm system will move from New Mexico and into
portions of Texas and Kansas during the day Wednesday with snow
diminishing in the mountains and Palmer Divide by afternoon. Rain
will also end over the plains during the afternoon hours. Dry and
warmer conditions should return to the area on Thursday with a
passing high pressure ridge. Then another storm system will effect
the region on Friday and Saturday with another good shot of rain
across lower elevations and snow in the mountains.
