...SNOW TO CONTINUE OVER THE MOUNTAINS...

.A Pacific jet stream and moisture plume will combine to produce
accumulating snowfall over the northern Colorado mountains today
through this evening. Snow intensity is expected to increase
sharply from north to south this afternoon, reaching the I-
70 Mountain Corridor by late afternoon or early evening as a
strong cold front arrives. Travel conditions will deteriorate
rapidly during this time, with snow levels quickly dropping to
valley floors. Blowing snow may produce poor visibilities,
especially over the high mountain passes this afternoon and
evening. The heavy snow will decrease from northwest to southeast
late tonight, with drier conditions expected by Saturday.

On the plains, scattered rain and snow showers will likely
develop by early evening, behind the passage of a strong cold
front. Any snow accumulation on the plains is expected to be
light.

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

.DAY ONE...Today and 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 higher amounts possible.  The La Garita Range, and
areas up 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 snow.

Strong winds are expected through this afternoon along the lee
slopes of the southern Sangre de Cristo range over Huerfano and
western Las Animas Counties.  Winds will likely exceed 60 mph over
this area, especially along and west of Interstate 25.

Strong winds will spread east later this morning across the Eastern
Plains.  West winds gusting 40 to 50 mph are expected through this
afternoon.  A cold front will drop south across the Plains this
evening, turning flow northerly, with continued strong wind gusts
through late tonight.

Hazardous travel conditions are likely on area highways.  North-
South highways will see strong cross winds through this afternoon.
As winds shift northerly, hazardous cross winds can be expected on
East-West highways.  Those in high profile vehicles should exercise
extreme caution while driving on area highways through tonight.

In addition, near critical fire weather conditions will be present.
The strong winds will combine with humidity values near 20 percent
to produce the near critical conditions.  Those with outdoor burning
activities planned, should use extreme caution or postpone them to
another day.

.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.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible through tonight across all of Southern Colorado.

This hazardous weather outlook is for eastern Utah and western
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Mountain snow and wind will create periods of hazardous travel
today through early tomorrow morning. Significant accumulations
are likely at elevations over 9000 feet across most of the western
Colorado mountain ranges by sunrise on Saturday. Strong southwest
winds could gust up to 50 mph ahead of an approaching cold front
today. As this front passes winds will switch to the northwest and
wind gusts up to 55 mph are possible. Isolated lightning is
expected today and most probably near the cold frontal passage
through this evening. Significantly colder air arrives behind the
front and any wet or slushy pavement will quickly freeze leaving
some travel concerns as the precipitation end late.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Drier will scour out the snow showers by mid-day Saturday in most
locations.

High pressure will builds in by the second half of the weekend
bringing a return to sun and warming temperatures for the upcoming
