...STRONG WINDS AND LIGHT SNOW ACROSS THE PLAINS TODAY...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

North winds will increase across the plains this morning, with
gusts of 40 to 55 mph during the early afternoon. The strongest
winds will be around Akron and Limon. Light snow will fall across
most of the plains, with accumulations of 1 to 3 inches expected
from southeast of Denver through Limon and into the northeast
corner of Colorado. These areas could see travel difficulty due to
drifting snow and icy roads. The Denver area should see some light
snow, but with accumulations around an inch or less. In the
mountains there will be scattered light snow showers, mainly over
the ridges.

The strong winds will keep wind chills near zero in the single
digits today, and even with lighter winds tonight wind chills will
be near or below zero.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Light snow will fall over the high mountains Wednesday night into
Thursday, with mostly clear skies and weak warming over the
plains. Northwesterly winds will increase over the plains Thursday
with speeds of 20 mph gusting to 35 mph. Temperatures will then
warm to nearly 10 degrees above normal into the weekend. Dry
weather is expected until a potent system off the Pacific pushes
snow into the mountains Sunday and then over the plains Monday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Snowfall reports from spotters will be appreciated.
