...WINTER STORM WARNING IN EFFECT TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY FOR THE
MOUNTAINS...SNOW ADVISORY IN EFFECT TONIGHT THROUGH MONDAY IN THE
HIGH VALLEYS...

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW WILL SPREAD FROM UTAH AT MIDDAY TODAY
THROUGH THE COLORADO HIGH COUNTRY LATE THIS AFTERNOON. THE SNOW
WILL FIRST DEVELOP IN THE MOUNTAINS AROUND THE RABBIT EARS PASS
AREA BY MID TO LATE AFTERNOON...AND THEN SPREAD TO THE FRONT RANGE
MOUNTAINS AND SUMMIT COUNTY THROUGH EARLY EVENING. THE HEAVIEST
SNOWFALL WILL LIKELY REACH THE I-70 CORRIDOR FROM NEAR VAIL PASS
THROUGH THE EISENHOWER TUNNEL AREA DURING THE LATE EVENING AND
OVERNIGHT HOURS. SNOW ACCUMULATIONS BY LATE TONIGHT ARE EXPECTED
TO RANGE BETWEEN 3 AND 8 INCHES ACROSS MOST OF THE
MOUNTAINS...WITH AROUND A FOOT IN THE RABBIT EARS PASS AREA.

ON THE PLAINS...MILD TEMPERATURES TODAY WILL GIVE WAY TO A SLIGHT
CHANCE OF SNOW SHOWERS AND COLDER TEMPERATURES TONIGHT. GUSTY
WINDS TO BETWEEN 35 AND 55 MPH WILL OCCUR IN AND NEAR THE
MOUNTAINS AND FOOTHILLS.

A STRONG AND MOIST PACIFIC JET STREAM WILL BRING THE MOUNTAIN
SNOWFALL AND GUSTY WINDS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW WILL CONTINUE IN THE MOUNTAINS SUNDAY
THROUGH MONDAY. VERY POOR VISIBILITIES WILL OCCUR OVER THE HIGHER
MOUNTAIN PASSES WITH HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS. ADDITIONAL
ACCUMULATIONS THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON WILL RANGE FROM 8 TO 14
INCHES WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS POSSIBLE. AT LOWER ELEVATIONS
IT WILL BE WINDY FROM THE FOOTHILLS ACROSS THE PLAINS BOTH DAYS.

FOR TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY THERE WILL BE A CHANCE OF LIGHT SNOW IN
THE MOUNTAINS. STRONG DOWNSLOPE WINDS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN AND NEAR
THE FRONT RANGE FOOTHILLS BOTH DAYS.

FOR THANKSGIVING DAY THERE IS UNCERTAINTY ABOUT WHETHER A COLD
FRONT WILL AFFECT NORTHEAST COLORADO OR NOT. IF THE COLD FRONT
DOES MOVE INTO NORTHEAST COLORADO THEN THERE WOULD BE A SLIGHT
CHANCE OF SNOW. STRONG WINDS MAY OCCUR IN THE MOUNTAINS AND
FOOTHILLS ON THURSDAY.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT.
HOWEVER...ANY REPORTS OF MOUNTAIN SNOWFALL OR GUSTY WINDS IN
EXCESS OF 50 MPH WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
