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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Snow will continue to expand across southern Colorado tonight with
accumulations of 3 to 6 inches possible by morning across the
eastern San Juan mountains and the higher peaks and east facing
slopes of the Sangre De Cristo and Wet Mountains. Elsewhere, will
see 1 to 3 inches by morning with locally higher amounts possible
along the southern I-25 corridor from Colorado City to the Raton

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Light to moderate snowfall across most of South Central and
Southeast Colorado early Monday morning will diminish from west
to east through the mid morning and early afternoon. Snow will
ramp up again across the higher terrain, especially the Southern
Mountains, later Monday afternoon. This snow will then spread
eastward across the high valleys through the Southeast Plains
Monday night, before diminishing once again from west to east
through the day Tuesday.

The greatest storm total snow accumulations can be expected across
the higher terrain where 8 to 18 inches, and locally up to 2 feet
across the Southern Mountains, will be possible over the 2 day
period. The adjacent northern portions of the I-25 corridor from
the Palmer Divide to Pueblo may see 4 to 8 inches, with the
southern portions of the Corridor seeing 8 to locally 14 inches of
snow, with the highest amounts closest to the higher terrain west
of the Corridor. The High Mountain Valleys and the rest of the
Southeast Plains could see 4 to 9 inches, with locally higher
amounts possible over the 2 day period.

Much colder temperatures will accompany this system, and roads are
likely to become slick and snowpacked, especially in and near the
mountains. The lower elevations will see slick and snowpacked roads
at times with the greatest impacts likely for the Monday morning
and Tuesday morning commutes.

Another system digging into the Great Basin on Wednesday, could bring
more snow to the higher terrain along and west of the Continental
Divide Thursday and Friday, and across all of South Central and
Southeast Colorado on Saturday.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely tonight over much of southern Colorado.
