...Rain and snow on the way Thursday night into Friday...

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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Today will be warm and breezy in most areas, with low humidity
leading to an elevated fire danger in areas west and southwest of
Denver.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

Strong southwesterly winds combined with low humidity will bring
critical fire weather conditions along the southern foothills,
Palmer Divide and over portions of the northeast plains in the
afternoon. Rain and snow showers will develop in the mountains
Thursday afternoon with a slight chance of some thunderstorms over
the northeast plains, strongest closer to the Kansas border.

Thursday night through Friday, a storm system is expected to
track slowly across Colorado. This system will bring much needed
precipitation to the region. Moderate to heavy snow will be
possible in the Front Range Mountains, Foothills and Palmer
Divide above 6500 feet, with widespread rain or a mix of rain and
snow over the northeast plains. The Front Range Mountains east of
the Continental Divide and higher foothills could see up to a foot
of snowfall by Friday afternoon, with 3 to 6 inches of snow
over the Palmer Divide, and periods of moderate to heavy rainfall
across the northeastern plains.

Precipitation will diminish Friday night with dry and warmer
weather on Saturday. The next system could bring another chance of
precipitation to the region on Sunday, then drier again Sunday
night into Monday.
