...Snow, patchy freezing drizzle and much colder temperatures
today and tonight...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A Pacific storm will track east over Wyoming and northern
Colorado later today bringing snow, possibly heavy at times, to
the mountains and areas of light snow to the high plains this
afternoon through this evening. The heaviest snowfall due to
banding is likely along and north of line from Breckenridge in
Summit County to Greeley in Weld County. Portions of the I-25
corridor south of this line will continue to see a chance of
light snow into early this afternoon when a push of snow is
expected to come off the mountains. There may be more patchy
freezing drizzle over the far northeastern plains this evening. Snowfall
should diminish in most areas late tonight. Overall, the northern
and central mountains, northern foothills and North and Middle
parks will likely see a total of 4 to 8 inches with localized
areas of a foot over the northern most areas. The northern urban
corridor will likely see 3 to 6 inches. Anticipate difficult
winter driving conditions in the high country and over northern
portions of the I-25 urban corridor.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Scattered snow showers will continue over the mountains and
adjacent plains Tuesday and Tuesday evening. Mountain areas could
see a few more inches of snow. Accumulations on the plains will be
light. Dry and continued cool weather is expected for Wednesday.
Continuing southwest flow aloft over Colorado through the end of
the week will bring a continued chance of snow to the mountains
from late Wednesday through early Saturday. Plains locations
should be dry with temperatures remaining below normal.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
