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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Snow will continue along the Continental Divide through tonight
with 4 to 8 inches likely by Friday morning. Gusty winds will
produce areas of blowing snow and difficult travel conditions over
high mountain passes through tonight.

A strong cold front will drop south across the Plains late tonight
into Friday morning. Very strong northerly winds of 35 to 45 mph,
with gusts exceeding 65 mph are likely. These winds will produce
hazardous travel conditions on east to west highways, especially
for high profile vehicles. In addition, winds may take down power
lines and trees, knock out power and cause property damage.

Snow is expected over the Palmer Divide late tonight with
blizzard conditions expected through the morning commute. The very
strong winds will produce poor visibilities, snow covered roads
and difficult travel along Interstate 25 over Monument Hill and
Highway 24 between Colorado Springs and Limon. In addition, the
strong winds, and heavy wet nature of the snowfall may produce
power outages and cause tree damage where spring leafing has
occurred. Snow accumulations of 8 to 10 inches are possible
through Friday morning over the Palmer Divide.

There is less confidence in snow accumulations over southern El
Paso County where the rain and snow line will exist. Current
thinking is that snow will likely remain above 6000 feet over
Colorado Springs, with a tight gradient of snow, from none on the
south end of the city, to around 5 or 6 inches on the north end.

Snow is also expected over the Eastern Mountains and Raton Ridge
areas including the southern Interstate 25 corridor late tonight
into Friday morning. Mountain areas will likely see 4 to 8 inches
of snowfall, while the lower elevations of the Raton may see 1 to
3 inches. Snow in this area will depend on the rain snow line as
well, with confidence not as high in how much will fall.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Blizzard conditions will continue across northern El Paso county
Friday morning. Travel across northern El Paso county will likely
be difficult at best due to the heavy, wet, wind-driven snow.
Winds gusts of 50 to 65 mph will be possible. The overall
strongest winds and heaviest snow will subside through the late
morning hours into the early afternoon.

Periods of heavy snow will be possible Friday morning across all
of the southern mountains, including the Wet Mountain Valley, the
Wet Mountains and Sangre de Cristo mountains. The heaviest snow
will occur above 7000 feet, with less snowfall over the Raton
region.

Damaging winds, with gusts to 65 to 70 mph, will be possible across
all of the southeast plains throughout the day on Friday. The winds
will decrease slowly from west to east during the late afternoon
time period.

Another Pacific storm will affect all of the region Saturday
night into Sunday. This system has the potential to bring
accumulating snow to the mountains, and some light accumulations
to the higher elevations of the plains, especially areas above
6500 feet.

A third storm may affect the region midweek. There is still quite a
bit of disagreement on the storm track occuring to the computer
simulations. However, there is a chance of significant accumulating
snow for the mountains and possibly the higher elevations of the
plains during the midweek time period.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be likely across much of south central and southeast Colorado
tonight.

......Red Flag Warning for critical fire weather conditions this
afternoon for the southern foothills and much of the Northeast
Plains of Colorado...

...Potential for Blizzard conditions on the Palmer Divide and
portions of the Northeast plains for later tonight and Friday
morning.

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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Strong southwesterly winds combined with low humidity will bring
critical fire weather conditions along the southern foothills and
northeast plains this afternoon.  Rain and snow showers will
develop in the mountains late this afternoon.

There is the potential for an isolated severe thunderstorm over
the far northeast plains, mainly over Phillips and Sedgwick
counties later this afternoon and evening. Damaging winds and
hail would be the main impacts.

For tonight, a storm system is expected to track slowly across
Colorado. This system will bring much needed precipitation to the
region. Moderate to heavy snow will be possible in the mountains
foothills along and south of the Interstate 70 Corridor and
over the Palmer Divide above 5500 feet, with widespread rain or a
mix of rain and snow over the northeast plains. The combination
of strong winds and snow could produce blizzard conditions late
tonight I-25 south of Denver toward Monument and I-70 east of
Denver to just west of Limon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

On Friday a storm system will move slowly east of Colorado. This
system will bring snow to the mountains, foothills and across
portions of the adjacent plains. In addition strong winds will
occur over the plains of northeast Colorado which may create
blizzard conditions over the Palmer Divide eastward towards the
Limon area.

Additional accumulations will range from 4 to 8 inches in the
mountains and foothills with up to 6 inches over the Palmer
Divide. Across the adjacent plains 2 to 4 inches may fall around
the Denver area with up to 6 inches near Limon. Elsewhere snow
amounts will be under 2 inches. North winds of 25 to 40 mph with
gusts up to 55 mph will occur over the plains with gusts up to 65
mph over the Palmer Divide towards limon.

The snow and wind should gradually diminish through the afternoon
hours from west to east.

Dry and warmer weather will return on Saturday. The next weather system
could bring another chance of precipitation to the region on
Sunday, then drier again Sunday night into Monday.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY OR TONIGHT but snow
and wind reports would be greatly appreciated tonight and Friday.

This hazardous weather outlook is for east central Colorado...
extreme southwest Nebraska and northwest Kansas.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT...

Critical fire weather conditions are expected this afternoon in
northeast Colorado and adjacent areas of northwest Kansas and
southwest Nebraska due to dry fuels, low humidity and gusty south
winds.

There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms this afternoon and
evening mainly in northwest Kansas and southwest Nebraska. Damaging
wind gusts will be the main threat. Wind gusts in excess of 80 mph
and large hail can`t be ruled out with stronger storms. Blowing dust
and reduced visibilities may develop as a result of these strong
winds. An isolated brief tornado may also be possible.

Strong northerly winds will develop in northeast Colorado after
midnight tonight and spread into parts of northwest Kansas by
sunrise Friday morning. Wind gusts up to 65 mph will be possible.
Reduced visibility in areas of blowing dust will be possible for
locations that do not receive precipitation.

Rain will change to snow or a mix of rain and snow in northeast
Colorado late tonight and early Friday morning. Areas of blowing
snow will be possible where snowfall correlates with strong winds.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH THURSDAY...

Strong winds gusting to 65 mph will continue through Friday
afternoon, and a wintry mix may continue to impact locations
generally along and west of Highway 27. The best chance for slushy
light snow accumulations and blowing snow will be in eastern Colorado
Friday morning. Prepare for the possibility of rapidly changing and
hazardous travel conditions especially Friday morning along and west
of the Colorado state line.
