...CENTRAL/SOUTHERN ROCKIES...

AS SNOW TAPERS OFF TO THE LEE OF THE ROCKIES IN RESPONSE TO THE
DEPARTURE OF AN UPPER LOW...THERE IS THE THREAT OF ADDITIONAL
MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOW OVER PARTS OF THE SAN JUAN AND SANGRE DE
CRISTO MOUNTAINS THROUGH EARLY MONDAY AS UPPER DIVERGENCE COMBINED
WITH UPSLOPE FLOW INCREASES DUE TO THE APPROACH OF THE NEXT
SYSTEM.  ADDITIONAL ACCUMULATIONS OF 8-INCHES OR MORE ARE
POSSIBLE.  THE HEAVY SNOW THREAT IS EXPECTED TO DIMINISH
THEREAFTER AS THE UPPER LOW SHEARS OUT TO THE NORTHEAST.
HOWEVER...ADDITIONAL SNOW SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED TO CONTINUE ACROSS
THE REGION AS UPSTREAM ENERGY CONTINUES TO UNDERCUT THE RIDGE.

THE PROBABILITY OF SIGNIFICANT ICING IS LESS THAN 10 PERCENT.
