This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A strong weather system will move across the central and southern
Rockies through Saturday. Snow showers will continue to become
widespread in the mountains through the day. Some of the showers
will be heavy this afternoon and evening, and a few thunderstorms
are also possible. Accumulations of 6 to 12 inches will be common
over the higher mountains and on the higher east slopes of the
Front Range by this afternoon, with 2 to 6 inches in the mountain
valleys and the lower foothills.

On the plains, scattered rain showers will develop over the
eastern border through the morning and into the afternoon. Rain
will then increase across the plains by the afternoon hours. The
rain is expected to change to snow above about 5500 feet during
the night. Some locations may have an inch or two of snow on
grassy areas, especially in the higher elevations south of Denver.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Snow will continue in the mountains and foothills, with scattered
to numerous rain and snow showers across the northeast plains in
the morning, with rain showers in the afternoon. The storm system
will exit the region by Saturday evening, followed by a warmer and
relatively drier pattern for Sunday and Monday. The next chance
of precipitation for the region will be on Monday night and
Tuesday. Warmer and drier on Wednesday,  then another shot of
showers and cooler temperatures by Thursday.


Snowfall reports from spotters will be appreciated.
