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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow will continue across much of southern Colorado today with the
heaviest snowfall continuing to impact the southeast mountains,
southern I-25 corridor and southeast plains.  Heaviest accumulations
of 8 to 15 inches will fall across the southern I-25 corridor and
southeast mountains with up to 2 feet of snow possible for the
favored northeast facing slopes of the Wet Mountains and Sangre De
Cristo mountains.  Snowfall on the plains will range from 6 to 10
inches north of highway 50, to 8 to 12 inches with locally up to 15
inches south of highway 50.  The western mountains will see storm
total accumulations of 4 to 8 inches with local accumulations of up
to 12 inches while the valleys see an additional 1 to 3 inches.
Snowfall will gradually diminish across western and northern
portions of the area by this afternoon...however heavy snow and
strong winds will continue through the night across the southern I-
25 corridor and southeast plains.

Roads in the high country and across the southern I-25 corridor will
remain snowpacked...while roads across the plains will be slushy and
snowpacked at times during the heavier snow.  North winds will
increase to 15 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph across the plains
this afternoon through tonight which will cause poor visibilities in
blowing snow. Heavy wet snow accumulations combined with the wind
may cause tree and power line damage.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

A dynamic storm system is expected to impact primarily far eastern
portions of the southeastern Colorado plains with snow, heavy at
times in combination with gusty northwest to north winds into
early Sunday afternoon.

Snow, heavy at times in combination with strong northwest to
north winds gusting around 40 mph at times will be capable of
generating downed tree limbs and power lines due to snow loading.
Also, travel may also be adversely impacted due to poor
visibilities in blowing snow along with slushy or snow covered
road surfaces at times.

In addition, colder air with this storm will also lead to below
freezing minimum temperatures across the majority of southern
Colorado both Sunday morning and Monday morning. If you have
tender vegetation outside make plans to bring them indoors or
protect them.

Then, next trailing storm system is projected to produce another
round of unsettled meteorological conditions from later Tuesday
into Wednesday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely across all of south central and southeast Colorado today and
tonight.
