This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...east
central...south central and southeast Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong winds, low humidities and dry fuels will result in another
day of high fire danger across the plains. Burning or any other
activities that could accidentally start a fire should be
postponed.

Wind gusts of 40 to 55 mph will be possible over much of the area
today, with gusts around 60 mph expected along the southern I-25
corridor in Huerfano and Las Animas counties. Some mountain
locations could see gusts in excess of 70 mph. The strong winds
may cause areas of blowing dust which could limit the visibility
at times in some locations. Additionally, they can lead to
hazardous travel conditions, particularly for high profile
vehicles.

Snow is expected over the mountain areas, with one to four inches
of accumulation possible, with the highest amounts expected along
the Continental Divide. Blowing snow may cause poor visibility on
some mountain passes today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Snow is expected across the higher terrain, especially along the
Continental Divide through Friday afternoon. Total snow
accumulations of 4 to locally 8 inches will be possible across the
higher peaks of the central mountains, with 2 to 4 inches
possible across the southwest mountains and generally 2 inches or
less across the rest of the higher terrain.

More snow is expected along the Continental Divide Saturday
afternoon through Sunday, with yet another round of snow for the
higher terrain expected Monday through Tuesday, with the main
focus expected to be along and west of the Continental Divide.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be possible over the mountain along the continental divide today
and tonight, and possible over the southern I-25 corridor today.
