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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow and blowing snow will occur today across the Continental Divide
region, with the heaviest snow occurring across the central
mountains. Several inches of new snow is likely. Winds gusting to
50 to 60 mph at higher elevations with gusts to 35 mph in the
valleys will occur, and this will cause significant amounts of
blowing snow.

By tonight, the snow will push east and may affect the western
sections of Teller County and the northern Sangre de Cristo

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Significant snowfall is expected along the Continental Divide from
Saturday through Sunday. There is still some question as to
exactly how much snow will fall in the southwest mountains, but
the central mountains should generally see one to two feet of

Snow chances are expected to increase late Saturday night through
Sunday night over central and eastern Chaffee County, Fremont,
Teller, El Paso, Pueblo and Huerfano Counties, the Sangre de
Cristo and Wet Mountains and the Wet Mountain Valley. There will
be the potential for some significant snowfall amounts, but at
this time there is some uncertainty as to how much snow will fall,
and a Winter Storm Watch remains in effect for these areas.

The mountains areas will see some strong wind gusts that will lead
to blowing and drifting snow, and poor visibilities at times
through Sunday.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely tonight across the mountains, especially the Continental
Divide region.
