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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Winds will increase this afternoon on the mountain ridges and
high passes and become even stronger overnight in advance of a
storm system swinging down from the Pacific Northwest. West winds
of 25 to 40 mph will become common, with gusts to around 55 mph
up around timberline overnight. This will produce wind chills of
10 below to 30 below zero, as well as areas of blowing snow.
Furthermore, the northern mountain ranges could see light snow
developing late tonight. Otherwise cool temperatures, light winds
and mostly clear skies will prevail at lower elevations today and
tonight.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

The next storm system will bring snow to the mountains Monday
through Tuesday evening. Areas along and west of the Continental
could receive 4 to 10 inches through late Tuesday, with the
highest amounts along west facing slopes. Gusty west winds on the
higher passes may also produce areas of blowing and drifting
snow.

There will also be a chance of rain and snow in the foothills and
on the plains of northeast Colorado late Monday into Tuesday
night, with the best chance of any measurable snow expected to
occur south and southeast of Denver late Tuesday into Tuesday
evening. Dry and warmer weather will then return to the outlook
area by late in the week as high pressure builds into the region
from the west.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
