This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Expect scattered showers and a few thunderstorms to  develop over
the northern mountains this afternoon and continue into this
evening. Across the plains, another warm day today with a slight
chance for late day showers and possibly a thunderstorm over the
far northeast plains by later in the afternoon.

A cold front will move southward over the plains later tonight
and will usher in much colder temperatures and low clouds after
midnight. There is also the potential for patchy drizzle and even
freezing drizzle for locations along and north of the Interstate
76 corridor.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Snowfall will increase across the mountains Thursday morning, with
some areas seeing rates of near 1 inch per hour at times. Across
the plains and lower foothills, areas of drizzle, freezing
drizzle and flurries will occur, though with warm ground
temperatures from the previous few days, impacts should be
minimal. A surge of colder air late afternoon will increase
snowfall rates in the mountains and turn precipitation to all snow
across the plains Thursday evening and overnight. The northern
mountains could see 6 to 12 inches total snowfall, while the
plains will likely see less than 2 inches.

Cool, cloudy and stable conditions will be left in the storms wake
for Friday, with snow showers and fog in the foothills and
adjacent plains. Saturday through Tuesday will feature a warming
and slight drying pattern, yet the mountains will see daily
showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
