...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR THE EASTERN COLORADO PLAINS THROUGH
MONDAY MORNING...

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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SNOW WILL BE MIXED WITH FREEZING RAIN AT TIMES ON THE EASTERN
PLAINS THROUGH THIS EVENING. THE FREEZING RAIN SHOULD REMAIN
CONFINED TO AREAS ALONG AND EAST OF A LINE FROM SEDGWICK TO AKRON
AND LIMON, WHERE HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED DUE
TO ICE ACCRETION ON ROADS. SIDEWALKS WILL ALSO BE ICE COVERED SO
PEDESTRIANS SHOULD EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION IF HEADING OUTDOORS.

ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE PLAINS, LIGHT SNOW WILL GRADUALLY SPREAD
NORTHWARD THROUGH TONIGHT. ALONG THE I-25 CORRIDOR FROM DENVER
NORTHWARD, LOOK FOR JUST A PERIOD OF VERY LIGHT SNOW OR FLURRIES
INTO THIS EVENING, BEFORE MORE WIDESPREAD SNOW DEVELOPS LATE
TONIGHT INTO MONDAY MORNING. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS THROUGH TONIGHT WILL
MOSTLY BE IN THE 1 TO 3 INCH RANGE...WITH THE HEAVIER AMOUNTS
FARTHER EAST ON THE PLAINS TOWARD LIMON AND AKRON.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

LIGHT SNOW WILL LIKELY CONTINUE THROUGH MONDAY MORNING ACROSS THE
FRONT RANGE, I-25 CORRIDOR, AND PLAINS WITH ANOTHER INCH OR TWO
POSSIBLE BEFORE TAPERING OFF AND ENDING DURING THE AFTERNOON.
SLICK ROAD CONDITIONS CAN BE EXPECTED FOR THE MONDAY MORNING
COMMUTE.

AS SKIES CLEAR TOMORROW NIGHT, SOME LOW LYING AREAS SUCH AS THE
MOUNTAIN VALLEYS AND ALONG THE SOUTH PLATTE RIVER BELOW DENVER
COULD SEE POCKETS OF DENSE FOG FORM AFTER MIDNIGHT.

DRY AND WARMER WEATHER WILL THEN RETURN TO THE REGION ON TUESDAY
AND PERSIST THROUGH MOST OF THURSDAY. BY LATE IN THE
WEEK, CLOUDS AND SNOW SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED TO RETURN TO THE HIGH
COUNTRY IN ADVANCE OF A STORM SYSTEM MOVING THROUGH THE GREAT
BASIN. THE HIGH PLAINS MAY ALSO SEE A FEW LIGHT RAIN AND SNOW
SHOWERS LATE ON FRIDAY.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT, BUT ANY
REPORTS OF ACCUMULATING SNOW OR FREEZING RAIN WILL BE APPRECIATED.
