This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Snow showers will increase over the mountains this afternoon with
scattered showers spreading onto portions of the adjacent plains
in the late afternoon. The main round of showers will be tonight
with the cold front moving east through urban corridor after
midnight and east onto the rest of the plains. A period of
moderate snowfall rates is possible. The mountains may see periods
of moderate to even heavy rates this afternoon and early evening.
Minor travel impacts can be anticipated in the mountains, with a
lower chance of impacts at lower elevations.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Light snow will continue over the mountain ridges Saturday and
diminish to scattered showers over the valleys. On the plains,
snow will end in areas near the mountains, with diminishing light
showers on the eastern plains into the afternoon. Total snow
accumulations of 1 to 4 inches are expected at lower elevations
and in the mountain valleys and foothills. Heavier showers may
produce up to 6 inches in a few locations which are hard to
predict in advance. Most of the high mountain areas will have 3 to
6 inches, except up to a foot in the mountains around Rabbit Ears

For Saturday night through Monday, occasional snow showers are
expected in the mountains with another chance of snow on the
plains Sunday night. Dry weather with a warming trend is expected
for Tuesday and Wednesday, with some cooling and mountain snow
likely by Thursday and a chance of rain or snow on the plains.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
