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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Accumulating snow and breezy to windy conditions are expected
over the high country this evening through Monday morning. These
conditions will result in difficult travel, especially over
mountain passes. Whiteout conditions are possible, especially in
high wind prone areas.

Critical fire weather conditions will be widespread this afternoon
across most of the plains, Palmer Divide, and urban corridor.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Moderate to heavy mountain snowfall will continue on Sunday. The
snow along with the strong winds will create hazardous travel in
the mountains. Across the plains, it will be breezy on Sunday with
a couple bands of light snow possible mainly to the west of I-25
and to the south of Denver. Monday through Wednesday, there will
be light mountain snow showers which could create brief periods of
poor travel conditions. By the latter half of the week, heavier
mountain snow is expected to return with a chance for
precipitation across the plains.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
