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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow will continue along the Continental Divide and the higher
elevations of the eastern mountain ranges this morning with
additional accumulations of 1 to 3 inches possible.  Elsewhere,
scattered light snow showers will be possible this morning producing
spotty, light accumulations less than an inch.  A combination of
flurries, fog and cold arctic air will result in very slick roads
across the plains this morning.  Morning commuters are advised to
leave early as it will take extra time to reach destinations.

The Pikes Peak Region may see a new round of snow showers develop
late this afternoon and evening as a weak upper disturbance moves
across the area.  The disturbance could produce a quick inch of snow
over parts of Teller and El Paso Counties.  Otherwise, flurries, fog
and slick roads will be possible over the plains again tonight,
leading to the potential for a slick morning commute again on
Wednesday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

An active weather pattern is expected to continue over the
mountains from Wednesday into Monday, with the highest potential
for heavier snow over the mountains anticipated from later
Wednesday into Saturday morning. The highest potential for
accumulating snow over lower terrain locations should be realized
from Friday night into Saturday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible through this evening across the mountains and the Pikes
Peak Region.
