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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

After a brief break in the snow coverage this morning, snow will
increase again across the mountains by late afternoon. The
combination of strong west winds and snow will create reduced
visibility, especially near the higher ridges and passes.
Poor visibility along with icy and snowpacked roads will cause
slow and difficult travel in the high country this afternoon and
tonight. A few rain showers will be possible over the plains this
afternoon ahead of a cold front which will push south across the
area after midnight. Showers of light snow can be expected across
the lower elevations overnight with accumulations under a half
inch under the stronger snow showers.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Snow in the mountains will gradually decrease Monday morning, but
gusty northwest winds will continue to produce areas of blowing
and drifting snow, and reduced visibility over the higher passes.
Total snow accumulations from today through Monday morning are
expected to range between 5 and 10 inches in elevations above 9000
feet, with up to 15 inches in the mountains from Rabbit Ears Pass
northward. Travelers should be prepared for hazardous winter
travel conditions through at least Monday morning, with slowly
improving conditions through the afternoon and evening. Mainly
dry weather will then prevail Tuesday through Thursday, with
temperatures returning to above normal levels. The next system
will bring snow, mainly to the mountains on Friday into next
weekend.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. Any
reports of snowfall in the mountains would be appreciated.
