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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

On Thursday, critical fire weather conditions will cover the
plains and Interstate 25 corridor due to very low relative
humidity values and gusty winds. Southwest winds gusting at 30 to
40 mph are expected to lead to extremely critical fire weather

A dryline is forecast to develop near the Kansas border Thursday
evening. One or two strong to severe thunderstorms are possible
late Thursday afternoon, into the evening hours. Large hail and
strong winds will be the primary threats.

Snow will move into the Continental Divide Thursday with several
inches of snow possible through Friday morning. Gusty winds will
produce areas of blowing snow.

A strong cold front will drop south through the plains late
Thursday night into Friday morning. Strong northerly winds at 35
to 45 mph, with gusts in excess of 65 mph are likely. These winds
will produce hazardous travel conditions on east to west
highways, especially for high profile vehicles. In addition,
winds may take down power lines and trees, knock out power and
cause property damage. Winds are forecast to subside by Friday
afternoon from west to east.

Snow will move across the Palmer Divide and Teller County late
Thursday night into Friday morning. Snow and blowing snow will
cause very dangerous travel conditions Friday morning. Snow
accumulations of 6 to 10 inches are possible with locally higher
amounts expected over the Rampart Range. The very strong winds
will also produce poor visibilities, icy and snow covered roads.
In addition, the strong winds and heavy wet nature of the snowfall
may produce power outages and cause tree damage where spring
leafing has occurred.

Expect snow to come to an end from west to east Friday afternoon
with snow remaining above 6000 feet.

Several storm systems are forecast to move across the region over
the next week. Another round of rain and snow is forecast for
Sunday into Monday, and again Tuesday into Wednesday. There is
still uncertainty with storm tracks and intensity at this time.


Weather spotters will not be needed tonight.
