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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Patchy fog in the urban corridor and areas of fog on the eastern
plains this morning are bringing down visibility. This should
dissipate by mid-morning. Snow showers will increase over the
mountains this afternoon with scattered showers spreading onto
portions of the adjacent plains in the late afternoon. The main
round of showers will be tonight with the cold front moving east
through urban corridor after midnight and east onto the rest of
the plains. A period of moderate snowfall rates is possible.
The mountains may see periods of moderate to even heavy rates
this afternoon and early evening. Minor travel impacts can be
anticipated in the mountains, with a lower chance of impacts at
lower elevations.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Light snow will continue over the mountain ridges Saturday and
diminish to scattered showers over the valleys. On the plains,
snow will end in areas near the mountains, with diminishing light
showers on the eastern plains into the afternoon. Total snow
accumulations of 1 to 4 inches are expected at lower elevations
and in the mountain valleys and foothills. Heavier showers may
produce up to 6 inches in a few locations which are hard to
predict in advance. Most of the high mountain areas will have 3 to
6 inches, except up to a foot in the mountains around Rabbit Ears
Pass.

For Saturday night through Monday, occasional light snow showers
are expected in the mountains with another chance of light snow on
the plains Sunday night. Dry weather with a warming trend is
expected for Tuesday and Wednesday, with some cooling and
mountain snow likely by Thursday and a chance of rain or snow on
the plains.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
