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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow showers are expected to increase in coverage across the central
mountains this morning and afternoon before diminishing through the
evening. Snow accumulations of 2 to 6 inches will be possible, with
the greatest amounts expected north of Cottonwood Pass. The snow,
combined with gusty northwest winds of 30 to 60 mph, will create
hazardous travel conditions at times across the higher mountain
passes of the central mountains.

Critical fire weather conditions can be expected across southern
portions of the I-25 Corridor and the eastern plains this afternoon
through the early evening. Care should be used to avoid any fire
starts across the area today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Another storm system will spread a good chance for snow to the
central and southeast mountains and adjacent plains Wednesday
night and Thursday. Light to locally moderate snowfall
accumulations will be possible for these areas, particularly
across the northeast facing slopes of the southeast mountains and
for the lower elevations along and west of I-25. There will likely
be impacts to the Thursday morning commute with slick and snowy
roads across the mountains and along I-25, particularly over
Monument Hill and the Raton Ridge.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible today over the central mountains, mainly north of
Cottonwood Pass.
