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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Snow will continue along the Continental Divide today, with a few
to several inches of accumulation expected. Some of the eastern
mountain peaks may see a couple inches of snow accumulation this

High fire danger is expected today across the southeast plains,
where strong westerly winds can be expected, along with humidities
falling below 15 percent.

Strong westerly winds along the I-25 corridor, especially from
the Colorado City area to the New Mexico border, will cause
hazardous driving conditions on north to south oriented roads,
including I-25, due to strong crosswinds. Drivers of lightweight
or high profile vehicles should be prepared for strong winds, and
consider postponing travel until the winds decrease.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Another round of light to moderate accumulating snow will be
possible later Sunday night through Tuesday across the Continental
Divide, with rain and snow showers spreading across the rest of
the higher terrain and eastern plains Monday night through

Brisk winds and continued warm dry conditions will lead to the
potential for high fire danger across the eastern plains on
Saturday and Sunday.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be likely along the Continental Divide today, and along the
Interstate 25 corridor.
