This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

An upper level weather disturbance will be moving over Colorado,
producing snow in the mountains through this evening. Snow
accumulations of 3 to 8 inches are expected in the mountain areas
above 9000 feet. Lower elevations in the mountains will see 2 to 5
inches of fresh snow. Snow in the mountains will continue through
the evening and then taper off after midnight.

On the plains, rain showers are expected to develop during the
afternoon which will change to snow by early evening. Snow will
then continue through late evening and then diminish. Snow
accumulations on the plains will be less than two inches, but the
evening commute may be slowed down by slippery roads from the mix
of rain and snow.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Light snow will continue Thursday, and be more prevalent in the
mountains than the plains. Snow may increase in
the mountains, foothills, and along the I-25 corridor Thursday
night into early Friday. The snow will end on Friday with dry
and warmer conditions for the weekend.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
