...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER OVER THE MOUNTAINS, VALLEYS, FOOTHILLS
AND PALMER DIVIDE TODAY..

...WINTER RETURNS SUNDAY...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Another critical fire weather day is in store for the region with
high winds, low relative humidities and dry fuels and grasses.
These elements combined can lead to rapid fire spread, especially
around the ongoing large fires in the region. Outdoor burning and
anything that could cause a spark is not advised.

Highs will reach into the 60s across the lower elevations and 50s
over the mountains and far northeastern plains. A cold frontal
boundary will push through after 6 pm and bring much colder
temperatures behind with snow overnight.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Snow and much colder temperatures are expected on Sunday and
continue into Monday. Expect 2 to 7 inches of snow across the
plains, and 8 to 18 inches over the foothills and higher mountains
by Monday morning. Temperatures will also reflect the changing
weather pattern with highs only reaching into the teens and 20s
Sunday into Monday with lows in the single digits across the urban
corridor.

Get prepared for a sharp change in our weather. Winter
travel conditions can be expected as temperatures will be cold
enough to allow snow to accumulate on roads, creating slick travel
conditions.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today and tonight.

Winter Storm Warning

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
1028 PM MDT Sat Oct 24 2020

...WINTER SNOW AND COLD HEADED FOR COLORADO...

.A storm system will move southward across Colorado tonight, with
much colder temperatures and accumulating snowfall. Snow will
move from the northern border area late this evening southward
to Denver and the Interstate 70 corridor late tonight into Sunday
morning. The heaviest snow is expected to fall on Sunday, before
tapering off late Sunday night into Monday morning.

Temperatures will be very cold, with highs only in the teens to
lower 20s on Sunday. Lows Sunday night will be below zero over
the higher terrain with single digits over the plains.

The colder temperatures and snow will result in snow covered
roads, and slick travel conditions. If you are planning to
travel, be prepared for slower than normal travel conditions, and
use extra time to reach your destination safely. Also, be
prepared for the sharp change in temperatures and dress warmly in
several layers of clothing.
