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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Precipitation will be confined to snow showers along the Continental
Divide. Local accumulations of 1 to 3 inches will be possible along
the Divide by Thursday morning. Winds gusting to 50 mph at times
will cause areas of blowing snow and poor visibilities, resulting
in hazardous travel at times through the mountain passes.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Strong winds, low humidities and dry fuels will result in another
day of high to extreme fire danger across the southeast Colorado Plains
Thursday. Burning or any other activities that could accidentally
start a fire should be avoided or postponed, as conditions will
be favorable for the rapid ignition, growth and spread of fires on
Thursday.

Snow is expected across the higher terrain, especially along the
Continental Divide, Thursday through early Friday. Snow accumulations
of 4 to locally 8 inches will be possible across the higher peaks
of central mountains, with 2 to 4 inches possible across the southwest
mountains and generally 2 inches or less across the rest of the higher
terrain.

Another round of snow is expected along the Continental Divide
Saturday night through Sunday, with yet another round of snow for
the higher terrain expected Monday through Tuesday, with the main
focus expected to be along and west of the Continental Divide.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible tonight along the Continental Divide.
