...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FOR THE FRONT RANGE MOUNTAINS AND
FOOTHILLS FROM EARLY THURSDAY EVENING TO LATE FRIDAY EVENING...

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

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT

SCATTERED LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE OVER HIGHER ELEVATIONS
OF THE FRONT RANGE MOUNTAINS FOR THE REMAINDER OF TODAY...WITH ANY
NEW ACCUMULATIONS GENERALLY UNDER 2 INCHES AND MAINLY ON NORTHWEST
FACING SLOPES. ON THE PLAINS...GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS WILL CONTINUE
TODAY WITH POSSIBLE GUSTS TO AROUND 40 MPH IN AREAS MAINLY EAST
OF INTERSTATE 25. IN ADDITION...EXPECT A FEW LIGHT RAIN SHOWERS TO
DRIFT OFF THE FRONT RANGE THIS AFTERNOON...WITH RAIN AMOUNTS NO
MORE THAN A COUPLE HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH. TONIGHT...SNOW SHOWERS
WILL BE ON THE INCREASE OVER MOUNTAIN AREAS GENERALLY SOUTH OF
INTERSTATE 70 WHERE A FEW INCHES OF SNOW MAY FALL BY MORNING. ON
THE PLAINS...LOOK FOR PATCHY FOG TO FORM LATE TONIGHT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

A STORM SYSTEM WILL DEVELOP INTO THE FOUR CORNERS REGION THURSDAY
SPREADING PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE OUTLOOK AREA DURING THE DAY.
THIS PRECIPITATION WILL CONTINUE THROUGH AT LEAST FRIDAY EVENING
AS THE STORM TRAVERSES COLORADO. SIGNIFICANT SNOW ACCUMULATIONS
WILL LIKELY OCCUR IN THE HIGH COUNTRY. IT IS NOT CERTAIN AT THIS
TIME WHETHER TEMPERATURES AT LOWER ELEVATIONS WILL BE COLD ENOUGH
TO PRODUCE SNOW BUT MIXED PRECIPITATION IS NOT OUT OF THE
QUESTION ACROSS THE PLAINS AND URBAN CORRIDOR.

THE STORM SHOULD EXIT THE STATE SATURDAY...LOWERING THE CHANCES OF
PRECIPITATION AT THAT TIME BUT ANOTHER STORM MAY DEVELOP SIMILARLY
TO BRING ANOTHER ROUND OF RAIN AND SNOW TO THE OUTLOOK AREA EARLY
NEXT WEEK.

TEMPERATURES WILL BE WELL BELOW NORMAL THROUGHOUT THE PERIOD.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
