This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

An incoming system will bring wind and snow hazards across mainly
the high country this evening. Expect strong winds in the
mountains and foothills this afternoon with gusts up to 55 mph for
portions of the mountains. There is potential for banded
snow or snow squalls as the cold front moves south across the
mountains late this afternoon and evening. Travel may be
difficult at times if experiencing one of these bands due to
rapidly decreasing visibility. Winds will also lead to blowing
snow hazards as well in the mountains.

Across the urban corridor and northeast plains, gusty northerly
winds from winds 30 to 45 mph will be possible after the frontal
passage. There will be a chance of snow or a mix of rain and snow
as well with or shortly after the passage of the cold front.
Along the Palmer Divide east of Interstate 25 and south of
Interstate 70, up to one inch of snowfall will be possible by late
this evening, with little to no snow accumulation expected

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Snow becomes light in the mountains Thursday, but roads may remain
snow covered and slippery through Thursday morning. Gusty north to
northwest winds will prevail Thursday as well. The strongest
winds will be found over the plains where gusts to 55 mph will be
possible. By sunset Thursday, the snow and gusty winds will end.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight but
snowfall reports will be appreciated.
