THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL

Rain and snow will continue over the region through tomorrow
morning. Mountain areas will see snow above 7500 ft through the
afternoon with 6 to 12 inches expected by the morning. Around 7500
ft elevation a rain and snow mix will create for heavy, wet snow
and hazardous driving conditions through the morning and again
overnight. Snow intensity along the Northern foothills this
morning will be 1 to 2 inches per hour before tapering off into
the afternoon. Later this evening the Southern Foothills and areas
along the Palmer Divide will see an increase in snow intensity
with 5 to 12 inches possible. As the intensity increases overnight
snow rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour will be possible creating
for hazardous winter driving conditions. As temperatures fall
tonight, expect a mix of rain and snow between 5200 to 6200 feet.
Most of the eastern plains will see rain with some light
accumulation over portions of southern Denver with 1 to 2 inches
possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

A weakening storm system will move from New Mexico and into
portions of Texas and Kansas during the day Wednesday with snow
diminishing in the mountains and Palmer Divide by afternoon. Rain
will also end over the plains during the afternoon hours. Dry and
warmer conditions should return to the area on Thursday. Then
another storm system will impact the region Friday and into
Saturday with another good chance of rain across lower elevations
and snow in the mountains.
