...FIRE WEATHER ON THE PLAINS TODAY, SNOW IN THE MOUNTAINS TONIGHT,
AND HIGH WINDS POSSIBLE ON THE PLAINS TUESDAY...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The rural plains and Palmer Divide will experience critical fire
weather conditions this afternoon with strong southeast winds and
very low humidity. Snow will develop in the mountains this
afternoon, becoming heavy this evening and overnight with strong
winds impacting higher elevations. This will lead to hazardous
travel and reduced visibilities, particularly for the Front Range
mountains.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

High winds are possible over the northeast plains on Tuesday,
northeast of a line from Fort Collins to Limon. In these areas
wind gusts up to 65 mph are possible. Gusts this strong are also
possible in the foothills of Boulder and Larimer counties late
tonight and Tuesday morning.

The mountains will have light to moderate snow in the morning,
while the plains will have some rain showers. Storm total snowfall
in the higher mountains will be 8 to 18 inches, with the heaviest
amounts in the Front Range north of Berthoud Pass. The showers
will end from west to east Tuesday afternoon, with winds
diminishing late in the day.

Cooler weather with a chance of showers will persist the rest of
the week into next weekend, with occasional snow in the mountains
a chance of mainly rain showers on the plains.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Snowfall reports from spotters will be appreciated.
