This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Upslope flow on the north side of a strong Spring storm system
over northern New Mexico will continue producing light snow over
northeast Colorado this morning. Additional snow accumulations up
to a few inches will fall over the Front Range foothills of
Jefferson and Douglas Counties and over the Palmer Divide. Other
locations on the plains will see less than an inch of snow. Roads
will be mostly wet, except on bridges and overpasses early this
morning which could be icy. Snow will decrease in the afternoon.

Tonight, as dry air begins moving into the state from the north,
skies will begin clearing out and temperatures will fall. Lows
across the plains will be in the lower 20s, leading to a damaging
freeze. Residents should take action to protect tender vegetation,
garden hoses and irrigation systems.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

There will be some lingering snow over the far eastern plains
Sunday morning with up to an inch of accumulation possible.
Otherwise, it will be dry except for a slight chance of snow
showers in the mountains.

Snow will increase in the mountains Sunday night as a weak
disturbance moves across.  On Monday there will be a chance of
snow showers in the mountains with a slight chance of afternoon
rain showers across the plains.

Another weather system will affect the region Tuesday into early
Wednesday. This system will bring snow to the mountains with a
good chance of rain across northeast Colorado.


Snowfall reports from spotters will be appreciated.
