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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong southwest winds, gusting to nearly 40 mph, will combine
with very low relative humidity to produce critical fire weather
conditions along the Interstate 25 corridor and across all of the
southeast plains today. Over the mountains, snow is forecast to
spread across the Continental Divide today and continue tonight,
with periods of heavy snow overnight. Winds will also be gusting
to near 50 mph over the mountains creating areas of blowing snow,
with low visibility and difficult travel over high mountain

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Snow will be ongoing over the mountain regions Tuesday morning and
will spread eastward into the Palmer Divide Region by Tuesday
afternoon. A cold front will drop south across the Plains Tuesday
afternoon with showers developing across the Plains through the
evening hours. Snow accumulations will be highest over the
mountains where storm totals of 10 to 20 inches will be possible,
while the Palmer Divide may see an inch or two. Expect
precipitation to dissipate by Wednesday morning. Isolated snow
showers are possible over the Central Mountains on Sunday

Ahead of the cold front on Tuesday, areas of Huerfano and western
Las Animas Counties could see near critical fire weather
conditions Tuesday afternoon. This will need to be monitored.
Another round of strong gusty winds and low humidity values is
expected on Sunday afternoon across all of the Eastern Plains.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be possible today and tonight along the Continental Divide.
