This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Lingering snow over the far eastern plains will come to an end by
mid morning, while snow showers in the mountains will also be
decreasing. A quick inch or two is possible from the heavier

It will become windy over the entire region later this morning
through much of the afternoon. Peak gusts will reach 35 to 45 mph
over most of the plains, with 50-70 mph gusts in and right next to
the Front Range Foothills. The stronger winds will produce some
blowing snow in areas that saw a few inches of snow over the last
couple days. The blowing snow may produce variable road conditions
with short, icy sections of highways possible.

For tonight, snow will redevelop in the mountains with 1 to 4
inches of snow above 9000 feet, with locally higher amounts
upwards of 6 inches north of Rabbit Ears Pass. Winds on the plains
will decrease by early evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

The mountains and high valleys will receive a few more inches of
snowfall Sunday morning as an upper level weather disturbance
moves out of the state. Gusty winds will also continue over the
mountain ridges, although not as strong as Saturday`s winds. The
plains should be dry with a slow warming trend through the first
half of the upcoming week. A weak upper level disturbance is
expected to cross over the state Wednesday with a chance of snow
in the mountains. Snow accumulations are expected to be light.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. However,
any strong wind reports will be appreciated.
