...Winter Weather Advisory late tonight through Tuesday morning
I-70 Mountain corridor, southern Foothills and Palmer Divide...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A storm system will move into the Great Basin today and then
move into Colorado tonight. Ahead of the system gusty southwest
winds over the Palmer Divide will produce elevated fire danger
this afternoon.  Meanwhile there will be a chance of showers
and possibly a few thunderstorms over the higher terrain this

For tonight, snow will increase in the mountains late this evening
and continue overnight. Across the plains rain will develop after
midnight and gradually change to snow late tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Snow will continue across most of the area Tuesday morning. There
is still considerable uncertainty with regard to accumulations,
but there is higher confidence that several inches of snow will
accumulate over the I-70 Mountain Corridor, foothills west and
southwest of Denver, and the Palmer Divide. Generally lighter
snow accumulations are expected from Denver to points north and
east. The least amount of snow is expected near the Wyoming border
where only a dusting to 1 inch of snow will be possible. Travelers
should plan on slow and slippery travel conditions for the Tuesday
morning commute. Snow will then end from north to south across the
area from late Tuesday morning through the early afternoon hours.

Wednesday will be dry with seasonal temperatures, but winds will
be gusty in the Front Range mountains and foothills with gusts of
40 to 50 mph possible. Another system may affect the area
Thanksgiving with colder temperatures and a chance of light snow.
Then dry weather is expected to build back for Friday and the


Spotter activation will not be needed.
