URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
314 PM MDT Mon Mar 27 2017

...QUICK SHOT OF SNOW THE FOOTHILLS AND MONUMENT HILL TUESDAY
NIGHT...

.A winter storm will move across Colorado Tuesday night into
Wednesday. This storm will bring a lot of moisture with it, but
temperatures will be rather warm. This means that the snowfall
will be heavily dependent on elevation. At this time it looks like
the significant accumulating snow will be above 6000 feet in
elevation. The heavier precipitation will also favor areas south
and east of Denver, so the heaviest snow is likely to be in the
foothills south of Interstate 70 and in Douglas and western Elbert
counties. The foothills from Interstate 70 northward, and the
Denver metro area, will likely see less snow, with mainly rain on
the plains below 5000 feet. Warm road temperatures will also
reduce the impact of any snow that does fall over the Front Range
cities.
