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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

A quick moving storm system will bring snow to the mountains, and
strong winds to all of southern Colorado through tonight.

Areas along the Continental Divide, especially the Central Mountains
and Eastern San Juan Range, will see 8 to 12 inches of snowfall,
with locally heavier amounts possible over higher west facing
slopes. The La Garita Range, and locations in the Upper Arkansas
Headwaters, including the Leadville area, will likely see 4 to 8
inches of snowfall. Expect snow levels to generally remain above
9000 feet. More isolated snowfall is expected over the Eastern
Mountains, where an inch or two of snowfall is possible on area
peaks. Strong winds will accompany the snow, producing hazardous
travel conditions over mountain passes due to blowing and drifting

A cold front will drop south across the Plains this evening,
turning flow northerly, with continued strong wind gusts of 40 to
50 mph through late tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

A disturbance from the Pacific northwest could bring a few snow
showers to the region Monday night and Tuesday, primarily impacting
the central mountains and possibly the Pikes Peak Region.  At this
time, it looks like the system will move through fast enough that
any accumulations will be light.  The central mountains could see
maybe 2 to 4 inches with spotty local amounts less than an inch
possible elsewhere.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible through tonight across the mountains of Southern

continue through the afternoon gusting to 25 mph, then switching
