...WINTER STORM WARNING TONIGHT AND FRIDAY FOR THE MOUNTAINS NEAR
RABBIT EARS PASS INCLUDING THE GORE RANGE...
...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY TONIGHT AND FRIDAY FOR THE FRONT RANGE
MOUNTAINS FROM ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK SOUTH THROUGH SUMMIT
COUNTY...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow will spread across the mountains late this afternoon and
evening as a moist Pacific storm system reaches the state. Snow
will become heavy at times, first in the Rabbit Ears Pass area
by early evening, and later tonight or early Friday morning in
the I-70 Mountain Corridor. People planning travel into the
mountains should be prepared for adverse travel conditions, as
several inches of heavy, wet snow can be expected through tonight,
with more snow on Friday. Traction laws will likely be enacted.

Until then, look for mild conditions today. There will be gusty
winds over higher mountain passes with peak gusts reaching 45 to
65 mph today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Snow will continue in the mountains on Friday with a chance of
light snow across the plains. Light accumulations may occur south
of I-76. It will be cooler and windy as well.

Dry and warmer weather will return this weekend. Another weather
system may bring more snow and colder temperatures for late Monday
into Tuesday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. However,
any reports of accumulating snow from the high country will be
appreciated.
