...WINDY WITH AREAS OF BLOWING SNOW AND POTENTIAL TRAVEL IMPACTS
NEAR THE FRONT RANGE TODAY...
...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY TONIGHT AND SATURDAY FOR THE MOUNTAINS
AROUND RABBIT EARS PASS...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Gusty winds will spread down the foothills this morning and then
across the plains late this morning through early afternoon. Areas
of blowing snow and possible travel impacts can be expected.
Locations most vulnerable to blowing snow and rapidly changing
visibilities and road conditions will be Highway 93 between
Boulder and Golden, C-470 in the southwest portions of metro
Denver, US 36 between Broomfield and Lyons, and Highway 285 in
South Park. If you are planning to travel on these roads, check
road conditions at cotrip.org and use caution if blowing snow is
encountered.

In the mountains, scattered light snow showers will occur today,
with little if any accumulation. Snow will become more widespread
tonight as another weather disturbance moves into the region.
Roads in the Colorado high country become snow covered and slick.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Snow will continue over the mountains through Saturday afternoon.
Storm total snowfall amounts of 4 to 10 inches are expected for
the Park Range and Rabbit Ears Pass, with lighter totals for the
other mountain ranges. Otherwise, expect cool and windy
conditions over the Foothills and plains. Wind gusts of 40 to 45
mph are expected across much of the area. Some patchy blowing snow
is possible across the mountains and Foothills, which could make
travel difficult, even after the snowfall ends. Cool but less
windy conditions are expected again on Sunday, before a warming
and drying trend through much of next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
