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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Gusty northwest wind of 20 to 40 mph can be expected across the area
from the late morning through the afternoon, bringing elevated fire
danger to portions of the southeast plains today. The northwest flow
will also keep light and spotty snow showers across the Central
Mountains this morning, along with areas of blowing snow across high
mountain passes through the afternoon.

Snow showers will be on the increase across the Continental Divide
later this evening, as another weather disturbance moves across the
Great Basin and into Western Colorado over night. Generally light
snow accumulations of 2 to locally 4 inches will be possible across
the higher terrain along and west of the Continental Divide through
early Sunday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Light snow will continue Sunday morning with an additional inch or
two of accumulation possible along the Continental Divide.

Winds and temperatures will increase, particularly for Monday with
high fire danger possible across the plains due to a combination
of dry fuels, low relative humidity values, and gusty west winds.
Any outdoor burning is discouraged.

The next storm system will approach the area Tuesday night into
Wednesday bringing the potential for additional light to moderate snow
to the mountains and light snow to the adjacent plains.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible tonight across the Continental Divide.
