This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Increasing chances of snow over the mountains through the
morning. Lower elevations along the Urban Corridor and NE counties
will see a chance of light snow by the late morning hours into the
afternoon. Accumulations at higher elevations will range from 3 to
6 inches with 1 to 3 over the plains. Temperatures today will stay
on the cool side with highs in the mid 20s. Overnight temperatures
will once again drop into the single digits and teens with a
chance for fog on the plains by Friday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Another weather disturbance will move into the area Friday
afternoon and evening. Snow showers will become more numerous
across the mountains, with some of the snow also spreading onto
the plains by Friday evening. Over the northeastern sections of
the state, roughly east and northeast of Fort Morgan, areas of
freezing drizzle can be expected Friday evening, before turning to
snow overnight.

This system has potential to produce an inch or two of snow in
some spots along the I-25 Corridor, with 2 to 4 inches over the
far northeast corner of the state, and up to 6 inches in a few
mountain locations.

Travelers should be prepared for winter travel conditions late
Friday afternoon through Friday night. Travel may become quite
hazardous on the northeast plains where freezing drizzle occurs,
as road temps will be well below freezing.

One more round of light snow can be expected in the mountains
Sunday, while on the plains mainly dry conditions develop with a
slow warming trend through early next week.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
