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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Winds gusting to around 40 mph, low humidities and dry fuels will
result in high fire danger across the San Luis Valley today.
Conditions will be favorable for the rapid ignition, growth and
spread of fires.  Burning or any other activity that could
accidentally start a fire should be postponed.

A weather system will move through the central Colorado mountains
tonight bringing periods of snow, with accumulations of 3 to 6
inches. Winds gusting to around 40 mph at times will result in
areas of blowing snow and poor visibilities.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

A storm system will move across the region Tuesday afternoon and
night. Snow will initially be found along the Continental Divide
Tuesday morning, and will then spread east across the Plains
Tuesday evening before ending Wednesday morning. Snow levels will
likely fall to around 7000 feet in the mountains with several
inches likely. Moderate to heavy rain will be possible across the
southeast plains, especially along the adjacent slopes of the
eastern mountains, into the Interstate 25 corridor.

The next system will move across the region Wednesday into
Thursday. Another round of mountain snow is expected, while
showers on the Plains remain more scattered.

A strong storm will move across the area Friday into Saturday.
This storm has the potential to bring widespread snowfall to much
of southern Colorado, including the lower elevations. There is
still some uncertainty with this storm, but it needs to be watched
closely. In addition, overnight lows Friday night into Saturday
morning will likely drop below freezing.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely tonight across the central mountains.
