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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A shortwave could lead to accumulating snowfall under an inch for
Rabbit Ears Pass this afternoon thus prepare for slick roads;
flurries are possible for areas in the Park Range and Rocky
Mountain National Park. A breezy day today for parts of the
mountains and parts of the eastern plains. Southwest winds in
parts of the mountains will produce wind gusts up to 45-55 mph and
southerly winds in parts of the plains could produce wind gusts
up to 25-35 mph. This pattern may lead to elevated fire weather
conditions along the Palmer Divide.

Winds will subside rather quickly this evening for the plains but
the mountains and parts of the foothills could see gusty conditions
through the overnight hours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Dry and warmer conditions will prevail this weekend. Fire weather
conditions will be elevated both days over the Palmer Divide and
adjacent plains.

A potent storm system will move into the region early next week.
Depending on the exact track of the storm, significant travel
impacts will be possible over portions of northeast Colorado
Monday night through Tuesday night. Several inches of snow, strong
winds, and blowing snow will be possible. Right now, the greatest
risk of the more significant impacts is from the northeastern
plains of Colorado into eastern Wyoming, the Nebraska Panhandle,
and Dakotas. Mountain areas will also likely see snow, blowing
snow, and hazardous travel conditions.

Stay tuned to the National Weather Service or your local news
media for the the latest updates on this potential winter storm.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
