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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

A fast moving weather disturbance will bring light snowfall to
areas over and near the higher terrain of the Central Mountains
this evening, with snowfall spreading south and east across the
high mountain valleys and to areas over and near the Eastern
Mountains into early Thursday morning.

Snow accumulations of 2 to 6 inches will be possible across the
higher terrain, with 1 to 2 inches of snow possible across the high
valleys and areas along and west of the I-25 corridor. Timing of
this precipitation could make for a slick morning commute Thursday
for those using Highway 24 in the Pikes Peak Region and I-25 north
over the Palmer Divide.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

The weather pattern will remain active for the next few days.  Snow
will continue over parts of the area on Thursday.  Additional snow
accumulations will be possible, including 2 to 4 inches over the
southeast mountains, 1 to 3 inches on top of Pikes Peak and up to an
inch of snow elsewhere.

Another, potentially stronger storm system could impact the region
beginning Saturday.  If it remains on track, this system will spread
snow and cold south along the Rockies Saturday night and Sunday.
Significant snow could fall in the mountain areas with generally
light amounts elsewhere.

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be possible tonight across higher terrain locations.
