...WINTER STORM WARNING FOR MUCH OF NORTH CENTRAL AND NORTHEAST
COLORADO TONIGHT AND SUNDAY...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A Pacific storm system will bring snow the mountains of north
central Colorado this evening and continuing overnight. Snowfall rates
over the mountains will increase to 1 to 2 inches per hour after
midnight, producing snowpacked and icy roads. Meanwhile, freezing
drizzle is expected to develop this evening over parts of
northeast Colorado, including the urban corridor before changing
to snow late tonight or early Sunday morning. This will make roads
already slippery before the brunt of the snow comes later Sunday.
Adjust your travel plans if possible, or make sure your vehicle
has emergency supplies.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Snow will spread across the plains early Sunday. The heaviest snow
will shift from the mountains and Denver and the other Front
Range cities in the morning, onto the plains in the afternoon.
There will still be areas of freezing drizzle on the far plains
early Sunday morning before turning to all snow towards
noon.  The winds will also increase during the morning, with wind
gusts of 30 to 40 mph common in most areas by afternoon, and
gusts up to 50 mph possible over the eastern plains. These winds
will create blowing and drifting snow. Blizzard conditions are
possible Sunday afternoon on the eastern plains and road closures
are possible.

Storm total snowfalls in the higher mountains will generally be 6
to 12 inches, with localized amounts up to 18 inches. Elsewhere
accumulations will range from 4 to 10 inches, with the lighter
amounts expected in the mountain parks and around Fort Collins and
the heavier amounts likely south and east of Denver.

Weather conditions will improve Sunday evening as the storm
system moves east of the area, though winds may continue to
produce drifting snow on the plains through the night.

The next chance of significant snowfall will be next Friday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Reports of snowfall or icing will be appreciated.
