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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Scattered rain and snow showers will continue across the area
today as a weather system moves across the area today. The rain-
snow level should be around 8000 feet. Expect up to an additional
inch or two of accumulation this afternoon over higher elevations.
There will be a slight chance of weak thunderstorms this
afternoon, mainly over the southern foothills, urban corridor and
plains near and south of I-70. By tonight the system will move
east of the area with showers ending in the early evening hours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

An active storm track across the central Rocky Mountain region
promises to produce cooler weather and periods of precipitation
through next weekend. Rain and snow showers will develop in the
Colorado high country Monday afternoon and evening, with a few
rain showers spilling onto the plains.

More significant precipitation is expected to develop Tuesday
afternoon and Tuesday night as a stronger storm system moves into
the region. Several inches of snow accumulation can be expected
in the mountains and higher foothills, with mostly rain falling in
elevations below 7500-8000 feet. However, by late Tuesday night
and Wednesday morning, the snow level may drop to around 6500 feet
with some snow accumulation possible on the Palmer Divide.
Travelers should be prepared for winter driving conditions in the
mountains and foothills, and possibly over the crest of the Palmer
Divide Tuesday night through Wednesday morning.

A second storm system moving into the region Friday and Saturday
may produce another round of precipitation. This storm is
trending colder with mostly snow expected for mountain and
foothill locations, and rain possibly changing to snow across the
plains.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
