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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Southwest winds gusting to around 45 mph, low humidities and dry
fuels will result in high fire danger across the I-25 corridor and
southeast plains today. Outdoor burning or any other activities
that could accidentally start a fire should be postponed.

Heavy, blowing snow will become widespread along the Continental
Divide this afternoon through tonight. Winds gusting to around 50
mph will result in poor visibility. Travel through the mountain
passes should be postponed or rerouted if possible. If you must
travel, leave early, travel slowly and don`t follow too close.
Carry winter survival gear such as food, water, extra clothes,
blankets, a shovel, flashlight, phone and portable charger.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Snow will be ongoing over the mountains Tuesday morning and will
spread eastward to the Palmer Divide by Tuesday afternoon. A cold
front will drop south through the plains Tuesday afternoon with
snow and rain showers developing behind it through the evening

Total snow accumulations from this storm will be greatest along
the Continental Divide where 10 to 20 inches is expected by
Tuesday evening. The eastern mountain ranges could see total
amounts of 4 to 8 inches above 10000 feet, with 1 to 4 inches
below. The San Luis Valley could also see a few inches of snow
mainly tonight into Tuesday. Elsewhere, spotty accumulations of an
inch or 2 will be possible but most areas will see little or no
snow with this storm.

Ahead of the cold front Tuesday afternoon, areas of Huerfano and
Las Animas Counties could see critical fire weather conditions
develop again. This is being monitored for possible fire weather
