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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Locally strong wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph will be possible
through the afternoon in and near the mountains.

Gusty winds and dry air will result in near critical fire weather
conditions across the southeast Colorado plains this afternoon.
This is especially true for the plains south of Highway 50 and
east of I-25 that generally saw little snowfall from the last
storm. Outdoor burning or any other activities that could
accidentally start a wildfire should be postponed today.

A winter storm will affect the mountains tonight, especially along
the Continental Divide. 5 to 10 inches of new snow will be possible
by sunrise Thursday. The heaviest accumulations and locally
heavier amounts will be found across the eastern San Juan
Mountains. Winds of 30 to 50 mph will cause significant blowing
snow and poor visibilities through the mountain passes.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Moderate to heavy snow is expected over the higher terrain, and
especially along the Continental Divide, Thursday morning. Light
snowfall will then be possible over the higher terrain Thursday
afternoon through Friday morning. Another round of light snow
will be possible over the mountains Sunday night through Tuesday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be likely tonight in the mountains.
