This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow will increase over the mountains midday as an upper level
disturbance moves across the state. Accumulations of 1 to 4 inches
can be expected along the I-70 Mountain Corridor and Summit
County, with amounts increasing to the north with 4 to 8 inches
expected along and north of Rabbit Ears Pass. Roads will likely
become snow covered and slick during the heavier showers today,
and in most mountain locales tonight as temperatures drop. If you
are traveling in the northern mountains of Colorado, be prepared
for slick and hazardous winter travel conditions.

Along the I-25 Corridor, only isolated to scattered light rain and
snow showers can be expected this afternoon. However, rain and
snow will become more widespread over the eastern plains late this
afternoon and evening. Local snow accumulations around 1 inch
will be possible in the grass, mainly along and south of a line
from Castle Rock to Akron and Julesburg. Most areas will only see
a dusting and travel impacts are not expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

The next storm will bring more light snow to the mountains from
Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday night. Accumulations will not
be significant. The plains can expect a chance of light snow from
Wednesday into Wednesday evening. Accumulations are not expected.
Northerly flow aloft, with upper ridging west of Colorado, will
keep of a chance of light snow going in the mountains Thursday and


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
