This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow and wind will increase across the mountains today, creating
snowpacked roads and blowing snow. This may slow travel in the
mountains, especially up near Rabbit Ears Pass and areas north
where over a foot of snow is possible. A few rain showers will be
possible over the plains this afternoon, then a cold front will
push south across the area after midnight with some light snow
possible in the early morning hours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Snow in the mountains will gradually decrease Monday morning, but
gusty northwest winds will continue to produce areas of blowing
and drifting snow, and reduced visibility over the higher passes.
Total snow accumulations from today through Monday morning are
expected to range between 5 and 10 inches in elevations above 9000
feet, with up to 15 inches in the mountains from Rabbit Ears Pass
northward. Travelers should be prepared for hazardous winter
travel conditions through at least Monday morning, with slowly
improving conditions through the afternoon and evening.

Mainly dry weather will then prevail Tuesday through Thursday,
with temperatures returning to above normal levels.

There are signs that more significant snowfall will be possible in
the mountains starting Friday, and then continuing into next
weekend. Some of this snow could also spill onto the plains.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. Any
reports of snowfall in the mountains would be appreciated.
