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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A Pacific storm system, moving across the Great Basin tonight,
will bring light to moderate snowfall to areas over and near the
Continental Divide late tonight and into early Thursday morning.
Snow accumulations of 3 to 6 inches will be possible across the
eastern San Juan mountains by early Thursday morning, with
accumulations of 1 to locally 3 inches possible across the rest
of the higher terrain along the Divide.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Widespread precipitation is expected on Thursday, with snow in the
high country and rain at the lower elevations.  There will be the
possibility of some isolated thunderstorms over portions of the
southeast plains into the evening hours, with the main storm threats
being cloud to ground lightning and gusty outflow winds. The
mountains are expected to see accumulating snow on Thursday, and
with the convective nature of the precipitation, there is the
potential for localized areas of heavy snowfall with rates of up to
2 inches per hour.

Thursday evening, as temperatures cool, there will be the
possibility of accumulating snow over the Palmer Divide, with the
potential for a couple or a few inches. Also, gusty northerly winds
are expected to develop Thursday evening across the region, and
could lead to wind driven snowfall across the Palmer Divide,
resulting in poor visibilities.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible tonight across the Continental Divide, especially the
eastern San Juan Mountains.
