THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF CENTRAL...EAST
CENTRAL...SOUTH CENTRAL AND SOUTHEAST COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

HIGH WINDS WILL PERSIST THIS MORNING OVER THE EASTERN MOUNTAINS AND
THE INTERSTATE 25 CORRIDOR, WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS OCCURING OVER
AND JUST EAST OF THE WET AND SANGRE DE CRISTO MOUNTAINS AND
ACROSS THE RAMPART RANGE. WIND GUSTS OF 60 TO 80 MPH ARE FORECAST,
MAINLY WEST OF THE INTERSTATE, WITH DAMAGE TO TREES, POWER POLES
AND ROOFS POSSIBLE. HIGH PROFILE VEHICLES MAY BE OVERTURNED,
ESPECIALLY ALONG INTERSTATE 25 FROM COLORADO CITY SOUTH TO THE NEW
MEXICO BORDER. WINDS WILL GRADUALLY DIMINISH FROM NORTH TO SOUTH
ACROSS THE REGION THIS AFTERNOON.

SNOW WILL INCREASE ALONG THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE THIS MORNING, WITH
PERIODS OF HEAVY SNOW THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING, BEFORE ACTIVITY
TAPERS OFF TO FLURRIES OR SNOW SHOWERS BY EARLY THURSDAY MORNING.
STORM TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS WILL RANGE FROM 6 TO 12 INCHES, WITH THE
HEAVIEST AMOUNTS OVER HIGHER WEST FACING SLOPES. STRONG WEST WINDS
WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE AREAS OF BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW,
ESPECIALLY ABOVE TIMBERLINE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

ANOTHER ROUND OF SNOW WILL OCCUR LATER THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY
ACROSS THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE AREA, LIKELY BRINGING SEVERAL MORE
INCHES OF SNOW ALONG WITH WIND. THIS WILL CAUSE A MODERATE TO HIGH
IMPACT TO TRAVEL ONCE AGAIN.

MEANWHILE...MUCH OF THE EASTERN PART OF THE AREA WILL LIKELY
EXPERIENCE A PROLONGED BOUT OF A SNOW AND RAIN MIX...POSSIBLY
MOST SNOW...SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. THERE WILL BE A POTENTIAL FOR
SEVERAL INCHES OF WET SNOW. THERE WILL ALSO BE A CHANCE FOR LIGHT
FREEZING RAIN IN OUR KANSAS BORDER COUNTIES ON SATURDAY. THE
