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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Snow will continue across southern Colorado tonight with the
heaviest snowfall continuing to impact the southeast mountains,
southern I-25 corridor and southeast plains. Storm totals of 10 to
18 inches will occur across the southern I-25 corridor and southeast
mountains with over 2 feet possible for favored northeast facing
slopes of the Wet and Sangre De Cristo mountains. Storm totals on
the plains will range from 6 to 10 inches north of highway 50,
with 8 to 15 inches south of highway 50. Over the western
mountains and interior valleys, snowfall will taper off this
evening, with only another inch or two of accumulation possible
and that mainly over the mountains. Strong north winds gusting to
40 mph will combine with the snow across the southern I-25 corridor
and southeast plains tonight to produce areas of blowing snow and
poor visibilities.

Roads in the high country and across the southern I-25 corridor will
remain snowpacked tonight while roads across the plains will be
slushy and snowpacked at times during the heavier snow. Heavy wet
snow accumulations combined with strong winds may cause additional
tree and power line damage tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Snow will persist across the far southeast plains into midday
Sunday, along with north winds gusting to 45 mph. The combination
of snow and wind will lead to slushy or snow covered roads, with
low visibility at times due to blowing snow. Additional tree and
power line damage may also occur.

Cold air following the snow across eastern Colorado will lead to
subfreezing temperatures across most of southern Colorado both
Sunday morning and again Monday morning. If you have tender plants
that could be damaged by freezing temperatures, make plans to
bring them indoors or protect them in some other way.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely tonight across most of southeast Colorado.
