...LATE SPRING STORM TO BRING HEAVY SNOW TO THE FRONT RANGE
MOUNTAINS, FOOTHILLS, AND URBAN CORRIDOR TODAY AND SATURDAY...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A late season snow storm will bring much colder temperatures and
snow to the Front Range Mountains and Foothills today, with rain
changing to snow along the urban corridor and Palmer Divide late
this afternoon and continuing though tonight.  The northeast plains
will see mainly rain showers today with mix of rain and snow showers
overnight. The Front Range Mountains and Foothills above 7000 feet
will see significant snowfall amounts which should produce hazardous
travel conditions, tree damage, and possible power outages. Freezing
temperature are also expected later this evening into Saturday
morning


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

An impactful snow storm will continue through early Saturday
afternoon for all areas. This will lead to hazardous morning
commutes especially for higher elevations above 7000 feet.
Unseasonably cold temperatures Saturday morning may kill sensitive
vegetation or unprotected outdoor plumbing. Snow will likely
subside and transition to a rain snow mix Saturday afternoon.
Additional snowfall accumulations for the mountains and valleys
Saturday morning into the afternoon remain near 3-4 inches. It is
possible that snow bands may develop along the southern parts of
the I-25 corridor, Palmer Divide, and nearby plains thus there is
uncertainty in additional snowfall amounts in these areas.
Temperatures will gradually warm in the urban corridor and plains
leading to 1-2 inches of additional snowfall amounts until
Saturday afternoon. A cooler and wetter pattern continues into
next week.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter are encouraged to send snowfall reports.
