...A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through 5 AM Thursday
morning for Rabbit Ears Pass...

...Red Flag Warning in effect for southeast Elbert and southern
Lincoln County until 6 PM this evening...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Westerly flow aloft will bring gusty winds over the mountains and
foothills today with gusts up to 60 mph possible. Snowfall in the
mountains has tapered off this morning, but will increase later
this afternoon and tonight. Accumulations of 4 to 10 inches in
Park Range with 1 to 5 inches elsewhere.

Low relative humidity and gusty are expected to bring southern
portions of Elbert and Lincoln Counties to meet Red Flag Warning
thresholds.

The plains will see the chance for rain showers beginning this
evening with some areas transitioning to snow showers overnight.
Snowfall accumulations are not expected for the plains aside from
the possibility of minimal accumulations falling over the Palmer
Divide.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Light snow showers may produce slick conditions for mountain
passes Thursday, with a 20% chance of locally slick conditions
for the urban corridor early Thursday morning. Stronger winds will
impact the mountains by Sunday, spreading into the lower
elevations Monday, when locally critical fire weather conditions
may occur.

The mountains will see increasing potential for impactful snow and
blowing snow as early as Monday, with higher likelihood of
impacts come Tuesday. Forecast details for early next week are
more uncertain for the lower elevations, although a return to
unsettled weather is favored region-wide.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
