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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Snow showers developing over the mountains and high valleys will
increase in coverage this afternoon and continue through late
this evening. Snow totals by midnight tonight for most high
country locations will generally be under 2 inches, though some of
the mountain passes and higher west facing slopes roughly south
of Interstate 70 could see up to 4 inches of snow. West winds of
25 to 40 mph are expected to develop in the mountains and on the
higher Front Range foothills later this afternoon and continue for
most of tonight. Open areas above timberline may experience
stronger gusts to 60 mph overnight. This will create wind chills
ranging from 5 below to 20 below zero.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

The next storm system will bring snow to the mountains Monday
through Tuesday. Areas along and west of the Continental could
receive 4 to 8 inches through late Tuesday. Gusty west winds on
the higher passes may also produce areas of blowing and drifting
snow. There will also be a chance of rain and snow in the
foothills and on the plains of northeast Colorado late Monday into
Tuesday night, with the best chance of any measurable snow
expected to occur south and southeast of Denver late Tuesday into
Tuesday evening.

Dry and warmer weather will then return to the
outlook area by late in the week as high pressure builds into the
region from the west.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
