...Winter Weather Advisory for the mountains above 9000 feet
tonight and Thursday...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow showers will increase across the mountains through this
afternoon, and then become widespread and heavier tonight. Persons
planning travel into the Colorado high country tonight should be
prepared for winter travel conditions. On the plains, isolated
rain showers can be expected this afternoon, with a low threat of
a thunderstorm. Showers may become more numerous late tonight.

Another upper level disturbance moving quickly southeast into the
region will bring the unsettled weather.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Snow will continue across the mountains Thursday morning, and then
gradually decrease by late in the afternoon or early evening.
Total snow accumulations from tonight through Thursday are
expected to range between 4 and 8 inches above 9000 feet, with
local amounts up to a foot. In the lower mountain valleys,
accumulations will mostly range between 1 and 4 inches. On the
plains, rain showers are expected to become more numerous Thursday
morning, with the highest coverage over the northeast corner of
the state.

By late Friday and Saturday, a potentially stronger storm system
is expected to drop toward the Four Corners region. Temperatures
will be turning colder with most of the precipitation from this
storm falling in the form of snow. There is still considerable
uncertainty with regard to potential snow accumulations. If
heavier snow develops, then already leafed out trees would be
vulnerable to damage. We will continue to monitor the potential
snow accumulations across northeast Colorado, so stay tuned for
the latest updates on this spring storm.

After drier and warmer conditions Sunday into Monday, the next
storm system may bring more precipitation in the form of rain and
snow by Tuesday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

An upper level disturbance will move into the Central Mountains by
this afternoon spreading snow across the higher elevations.
Locations in the Sawatch and Mosquito ranges will likely see 1 to 4
inches by Thursday morning.  Snow will spread east into the higher
elevations of the Eastern Mountains tonight where up to 2 inches are
possible by Thursday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Snow and strong winds will continue across the central mountains
through Thursday with snowfall gradually decreasing by Thursday
evening. Snowfall totals will range from 3 to 8 inches for the
central mountains with impacts to travel expected due to icy,
snowpacked roads. The remainder of the mountains could see 1 to 4
inches of accumulation through Thursday afternoon. Isolated
thunderstorms will also be possible Thursday afternoon. This will
result in isolated heavy snow bursts in localized areas across the
mountain, while the southeast plains could see some small hail,
wind gusts to 40 mph and dangerous cloud to ground lightning.

A strong storm system is expected to take shape over the four
corners region Friday afternoon before moving slowly across New
Mexico through Saturday. This will bring the potential for a high
impact snowfall event for the mountains and adjacent plains
during this period, with the heaviest snow likely to fall late
Friday night through Saturday across the southeast mountains and
adjacent plains. This system has the potential to be colder than
the past several, with the possibility for a change over to snow
across all of the southeast plains by Saturday morning. There are
still some uncertainties regarding the storm track and timing of
its intensification, so please continue to monitor the latest
forecasts for possible watches, warnings and advisories.

Several rounds of colder temperatures will mean the potential for
sub freezing temperatures across the plains in spotty areas
Thursday night, with more widespread areas expected through the
weekend. If you have tender vegetation outside make plans to bring
them indoors or protect them.

Drier weather will return for Sunday and Monday with the potential
for another storm system for Tuesday and Wednesday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely this afternoon and tonight over the Sawatch and Mosquito
Ranges.
