This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Light snow will continue this morning in the mountains with the
Park Range seeing the heaviest snowfall amounts. This afternoon,
snowfall rates will increase to up to 1 inch per hour in the heavier
snow bands. Travel conditions will remain hazardous today after a
rough day yesterday with multiple crashes and closures. Allow
extra time for travel in the mountains or consider moving your
travel to another day. This evening and overnight tonight, snow
will decrease to flurries.

Across the plains, a cold front will bring cooler temperatures
with lows reaching the single digits to around 0 F tonight. This
afternoon and evening, freezing drizzle/fog and light snow may
develop. This will create slick or icy road conditions. Later in
the evening and overnight, the precipitation will change to all
snow with about an inch of accumulation expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

An arctic airmass will bring much colder weather for Sunday and
Monday east of the mountains with a chance of light snow. Wind
chill values will drop near -20 Sunday and Monday nights, and will
likely remain below zero during the day Monday.

In the mountains, snow will increase over the northern mountains
by midday Sunday and continue into Monday. Heavy snow will be
possible in the Gore and Park Ranges with lighter accumulations
further south over the I-70 Mountain Corridor.

Temperatures will begin to moderate by the middle of the week.


Snowfall reports from spotters are appreciated.
