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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Occasional light snow will continue to decrease through early
this afternoon across the northeast plains of Colorado. However,
lingering moisture and some instability will result in scattered
snow showers increasing again in the mountains and locations in
and near the foothills. Accumulations will mainly be an inch or
two, but some places may get up to 4 inches from the heaviest
showers. This is most likely in the areas in the foothills and
locations south of Denver. Most of these showers will be light,
but a few could produce a quick inch or two. Clouds will diminish
overnight tonight with cold temperatures.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

There is a good chance for snow showers in the mountains of
northern Colorado Saturday afternoon through early Sunday morning.
Light snow accumulation will be possible mainly on west facing
slopes. There is an even greater chance for snow starting Monday
morning with the first of two Pacific storm systems moving across
the state in close succession. Mountain areas, particularly
along and west of the Continental Divide, could see periods of
moderate snowfall piling up to several inches by Tuesday afternoon.
Gusty west winds on the higher passes may also produce areas of
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 morning, but the chance of measurable snowfall at
lower elevations will be slight. Dry and warmer weather will then
return to the outlook area for Wednesday and Thursday with high
pressure building in from the west.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
