This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow showers will continue over the mountains through this
afternoon and then diminish through the evening. Acumulations up
to 2 or 3 inches will be possible above 9000 feet. Gusty west
winds will also increase in the mountains with speeds up to 45 mph

Across lower elevations, gusty northerly winds up to 35 mph will
continue through most of the afternoon. A few rain showers will be
possible through the afternoon, mainly over the Palmer Divide.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

On Saturday, fire danger will be elevated across the high
mountain valleys and Palmer Divide.

A stronger storm system will arrive Saturday night into Sunday
which will bring snow and areas of blowing snow to the mountains.
Several inches of accumulation will be possible. This will result
in hazardous winter travel conditions. Meanwhile, strong winds
will develop across the Front Range Foothills and adjacent plains.
Peak gusts may reach 60 mph in/near the foothills, and up to 50
mph on the plains. Scattered but mainly light rain and snow
showers can also be expected on the plains.

Mountain snow and gusty winds will likely continue into Monday.
Then drier weather is expected before another storm system brings
snow back into the forecast by Wednesday night and Thursday.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
