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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong winds will impact the foothills and adjacent lower
elevations through tonight, with localized gusts 55-75 mph west of
I-25. With windy, warm and dry conditions in place, critical fire
weather conditions will develop across all of the lower
elevations, and may be rather persistent for the western Denver
metro into this evening. Light snow showers with blowing snow
across high mountain elevations will begin overnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Strong winds are expected on Monday, with gusts to 50 mph over
the plains and 60 mph in the mountains and foothills. A warm, dry
airmass along with the winds will combine for elevated to
critical weather conditions across the plains.

Snow will become widespread in the north central Colorado
mountains Monday and continue into Tuesday, with heavy snow
possible Monday overnight. The snow and windy conditions will
produce difficult winter driving conditions with significant
snowfall accumulations expected. Snow will spread onto the plains
Tuesday afternoon behind a strong cold front that pushes through
late in the morning. Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are possible
over the plains. There could be limited travel impacts late
Tuesday afternoon and early evening over some areas of the plains.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
