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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

A minor embedded weather disturbance will keep generally light
snow in place across the higher terrain along the Continental
Divide, especially the Eastern Sawatch and Mosquito Ranges,
through the evening, before snow diminishes overnight. Snowfall
amounts are expected to be light and spotty, and less than 2

This embedded wave could also bring a new round of snow showers
to the Pikes Peak Region this evening as well. Any accumulation
this evening across the Pikes Peak Region is expected to be light
and spotty, from a trace to locally 2 inches. Otherwise, patchy
freezing fog and slick roads will be possible over the Eastern
Plains tonight, leading to the potential for a slow morning
commute in spots on Wednesday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

An active weather pattern is expected to continue over the
area from Wednesday night into next Monday, as several weather
systems take aim on the Rockies.

One system will move across the Great Basin Wednesday evening and
across the Rockies on Thursday, bringing light to moderate snow
accumulations to all of the higher terrain. The greatest amounts
are expected across the Eastern San Juan Mountains through this
timeframe, where 6 to 12 inches will be possible. Light snowfall
will also be possible across the high mountains valleys through
the Eastern Plains late Wednesday night and Thursday.

Another system will take aim on the Rockies in the late Thursday
night through Saturday timeframe, bringing another round of light
to moderate snowfall to higher terrain along and west of the
Continental Divide through the day Saturday. Snowfall across the
rest of the higher terrain through the Eastern Plains looks to be
light and spotty through this period at this time.

Yet another weather system looks to move across the Northern Rockies
in the Saturday night and Sunday timeframe, bringing snow showers
to the Northern and Central Mountains, and possibly to northern
portions of the Southeast Plains.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible through the late evening across the mountains and the
Pikes Peak Region.
