This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

There will be a chance of snow in the mountains this afternoon
and a chance of light snow showers over the plains. Accumulations
will be minimal over the plains and up to 2 inches in the
mountains by evening. Temperatures will stay well below seasonal
normals today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Another weather disturbance will move into the area Friday
afternoon and evening, making snow showers more numerous across
the mountains, and some snow also spreading onto the plains by
Friday evening. Over the northeastern sections of the plains,
roughly east and northeast of Fort Morgan, areas of freezing
drizzle can be expected Friday evening, before turning to snow
overnight. Areas further west towards Denver may also see brief
periods of freezing drizzle Friday night.

An inch or two of snow is expected along the I-25 Corridor, with
2 to 5 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 INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
