...SLICK, SLOW, AND HAZARDOUS MORNING COMMUTE...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Heavy snow will continue for the morning commute in the Denver
metro area, Palmer Divide, foothills west and southwest of
Denver, and the I-70 Corridor through the mountains. Avoid travel
if possible this morning, as roads will be snow and slush covered,
slick, and hazardous. Visibility will also be poor due to heavy
snow.

Conditions will improve sharply from northwest to southeast across
the area later this morning into early afternoon. Snow will
diminish late this morning and then end in the Denver metro area
by noon. The last flakes farther southeast in the Limon area
should be ending by early to mid afternoon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Winds will increase on Wednesday for areas along the Front Range
mountains and foothills with gusts up to 50 mph possible. This
could cause areas of blowing snow for the higher elevations. Winds
should decrease by the evening hours with highs slightly warmer
than seasonal normals.

For Thanksgiving Day, another system will bring colder
temperatures and a chance of light snow for the higher elevations
and a slight chance for the foothills through the day. Conditions
will improve into the evening hours on Thursday.

Dry conditions in store for Friday with a slight chance of snow
for areas mainly south of I-70 into the weekend.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
