...ELEVATED FIRE DANGER TODAY...WINTER RETURNS TOMORROW AND
TUESDAY...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Gusty winds in the mountains and foothills are expected to
gradually decrease by this evening. Meanwhile, unseasonably warm
temperatures, very low relative humidity and gusty southwest winds
of 25 to 35 mph today will create high rangeland fire danger
conditions along the Palmer Divide in Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln
Counties this afternoon. Winds will subside in most areas this
evening. After midnight, a cold front will slip into northeast
Colorado bringing much colder temperatures, low clouds and a
chance of freezing drizzle to the area towards morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Areas of light freezing drizzle and very light snow on the plains
may bring slick travel conditions to the plains and I-25 Corridor
Monday morning. Sidewalks may also be slick in areas that see the
freezing drizzle.

In the mountains, snow will develop through the course of the day
Monday and become heavier in the afternoon and evening. That snow
will spread northeast across the plains late Monday afternoon and
Monday night.

At this time, expect snow amounts with storm system to range
between 1 and 4 inches on the plains, with potential for up to 6
inches in locations north of Denver to the Wyoming border. In the
mountains, look for snowfall amounts to mostly range between 4 and
10 inches, with locally higher amounts north of Rabbit Ears Pass.

Temperatures will be very cold with single digit lows and some
below zero readings possible both Monday night and Tuesday night.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
