This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong, gusty northwest winds will spread south over northeast
Colorado early this afternoon and continue until this evening.
Wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph will be common, with possible stronger
gusts to near 50 mph near the northern foothills and across the

areas of blowing dust on the plains as well as increase the

increase mainly over higher terrain roughly north of Interstate 70
early this afternoon with passage of a weak upper level weather
disturbance. Ridge tops and west facing slopes in this area could
see locally up to 3 inches of snow by evening. The strong winds
may also produce some blowing snow on the high passes possibly
impacting travel briefly his afternoon. Look for the winds to
decrease and mountains showers will end this evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Dry conditions will persist through Friday. Temperatures will
start a warming trend Sunday, and then above normal temperatures
can be expected Monday through Friday.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
