inches could fall by sunrise Friday.  The eastern mountains could
see local accumulations up to an inch by Friday morning.  Little or

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Snow will continue across the Continental Divide Friday into
Friday evening. Locally heavy amounts of snow will occur across
the central mountains while moderate amounts will be possible
across the southwest mountains. Blowing snow will make travel

region and the Raton Mesa region. wind gusts to 50 to 60 mph will
