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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A spring storm system will bring wet snow showers to the higher
elevations through tonight. Snow levels will start out around 7000
feet this morning, rise to around 8000 feet by noon and then
lower to around 7000 feet again tonight. Local accumulations of 1
to 3 inches will be possible above the snow level. For elevations
below 8000 feet, the accumulations will mainly be less than an
inch and on grassy areas. Due to much colder temperatures, the
top of Pikes Peak could see an additional 5 to 10 inches of snow
by Saturday morning.

Thunderstorms may be embedded in the showers at times today.
The primary hazards associated with these storms will be
lightning, wind gusts to around 50 mph and local pea size hail.
If a thunderstorm happens to track over a burn scar, it could
locally enhance precipitation rates enough to cause some runoff
concerns.

Tonight, it is possible that a frost will occur over parts of the
plains. Model guidance is indicating temperatures near freezing
by Saturday morning. If that is the case, then young, frost
sensitive plants will need protection. However, skies may not
clear enough for freezing temperatures to occur. If you have
frost sensitive plants, you may want to protect them just in
case.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Snowfall will return to the area starting Monday, and lasting
through Thursday.

Initially, a fast-moving disturbance will bring snow showers to
the central mountains on Monday. Another disturbance will cross
the state on Tuesday, bringing the threat of snow to all of the
higher terrain.

A stronger upper level low pressure system will approach the state
for Wednesday and Thursday, providing cooler air as well as a
better shot of significant new snow accumulation to the higher
terrain.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be possible through tonight above 7,000 feet.
