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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Blizzard conditions will continue through this morning across
northern El Paso county. Winds of 30 to 50 mph with gusts to 65
mph will occur along with bands of heavy snow. The winds and snow
should decrease there by early afternoon.

Areas of heavy snow will continue to fall across the southern
Sangre De Cristo Mountains, Huerfano and western Las Animas
Counties into the afternoon. Strong winds, gusting to near 65 mph
at times, will create areas of blowing snow and poor visibilities.

Very strong winds of 35 to 50 mph with gusts above 65 mph are
expected across all of the east central and southeast Colorado
plains today.  The winds along the I-25 corridor will decrease
this afternoon, but they will remain strong over the far eastern
plains into afternoon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Another Pacific storm system will move across the region Saturday
night through Sunday. This system may bring accumulating snow to
the mountains, with some light accumulations possible over the
higher elevations of the Southeast Plains, especially for areas
above 6500 feet.

Yet another storm system may affect the region from Monday night
through Wednesday. There remains quite a bit of uncertainty on
where this storm will eventually track. However, there is a
chance of significant snowfall for the mountains and the
possibility of snow over the plains above 6000 feet during
the midweek time period.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be likely today across most of east central and southeast
