This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

A Spring storm will continue to strengthen over the high plains
today. Heavy snow will become widespread from Sterling and Akron
eastward, with areas of lighter snow further west across the
plains. Winds gusting as high as 70 mph will cause Blizzard
conditions to become widespread in areas with snow cover, mainly
east of Brush, Last Chance, and Limon. Near zero visibilities and
extensive drifting snow is expected, with snow accumulations of 5
to 10 inches from Sterling and Akron eastward. Lighter snow from
Fort Morgan to Limon may still be enough to produce difficult
travel by this evening.

A High Wind Warning is in effect for the rest of northeast
Colorado east of the I-25 corridor through tonight for northerly
winds increasing to 35 to 50 MPH with gusts as high as 65 MPH. The
strong winds will create difficult travel and may produce local
power outages, tree damage, and minor property damage.

In the mountains, light to moderate snow will produce 2 to 4
inches of accumulation with locally higher amounts today. Snow in
the mountains will begin to decrease tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Gusty winds will linger Saturday over much of the plains and
scattered snow showers will continue in the mountains. Drier,
warmer and less windy weather is forecast for Sunday through
Tuesday. An upper level disturbance will move into the mountains
Tuesday night with some snow over the Colorado High Country. The
Front Range foothills may also see gusty winds Tuesday night and
Wednesday morning. Another ridge will build over Colorado by
Thursday, with dry weather and seasonal temperatures.


Spotter reports will be appreciated.
