...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY NORTHERN MOUNTAINS UNTIL MIDNIGHT
TONIGHT...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Winter has made a return with much colder temperatures and wintry
precipitation. Areas of freezing drizzle may create slick road
conditions over the northern border area and northeast plains
early this morning. Bridges and overpasses will be most
susceptible to icing.

Snow showers, some heavy, will then develop across the mountains
later this morning into this afternoon and spread east/southeast
onto the plains late this afternoon and evening. The heavier
showers will reduce visibility and likely accumulate some snow and
slush on the roads. Total snow accumulations are expected to
reach 4 to 10 inches in the mountains north of I-70, with trace to 2
inch amounts across most of the plains. A few spots along the
Palmer Divide could see 4 inches. Temperatures will be much colder
with highs only in the upper 20s to mid 30s across most of the
plans.

Snow will diminish and skies will start to clear overnight, with
some areas of fog forming, mainly along the South Platte River
Valley.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Mostly dry weather can be expected through much of this period. A
significant warming trend can be expected for the weekend, with
above normal temperatures by Sunday. Those warmer readings will
hold through at least Tuesday, before the next weather system may
arrive toward the middle of next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
