This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Snow is expected to develop in and near the northern foothills
late this afternoon and then become more widespread across the
area this evening. The more significant snow accumulations are
expected to occur in and immediately adjacent to the foothills
where several inches of snow are expected tonight and into
tomorrow morning. We do see a fairly sharp drop-off of snow
amounts to the east across the plains east of Denver International
Airport. The main travel impacts will occur after the evening rush
hour tonight but will heavily impact the morning commute Thursday

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Slick roads and some light snow are expected to linger along the
Front Range and Palmer Divide into the Thursday morning commute.
Additional snowfall amounts will be light, with an inch or less of
snow over the Palmer Divide area and southern portions of Lincoln
county. Snow will end from northwest to southeast across the area
in the morning hours with clearing skies for the afternoon.

Light snow is expected to redevelop in the mountains Friday, and
continue off and on through the weekend. Strong, gusty winds can
be expected over the mountains, foothills, and adjacent plains on
Friday as well. Peak gusts greater than 60 mph, some blowing snow,
and slick/slow travel conditions will occur over the higher
mountain passes. The plains should see mostly dry conditions
through early next week, although there may a couple spots that
see some light snow, mainly Saturday night or early Sunday.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
