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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Light snow will be decreasing north to south this morning, with
only an additional half inch possible over the plains and urban
corridor, and another inch or two over the high mountains. Roads
for this mornings rush hour will be wet with some slush over most
of the plains and urban corridor, with some slush mixed with snow
closer to the foothills and Palmer Divide. Roads in the mountains
will be snowpacked.

Strong winds on the backside of last nights trough will push
across the eastern plains with gusts of 35 to 50 mph possible by
early this afternoon. This will make travel difficult across east
to west oriented roads, especially for light and high profile
vehicles.

Gusty downslope winds will develop after midnight tonight along
the eastern slopes of the Front Range mountains and foothills,
with gusts up to 40 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Gusty winds are expected to develop in the Front Range Foothills
Friday, with peak gusts reaching 45 to 60 mph in wind prone areas.
Lighter winds can be expected elsewhere, along with warmer and
dry conditions.

The next cold front will move across the area Saturday, and as an
upper level disturbance approaches the region, another round of
light snow will be possible Saturday night into early Sunday. Then
drier and warmer weather is expected to redevelop for the first
half of next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. However,
snowfall reports will be appreciated.
