This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...east
central...south central and southeast Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong, damaging west winds are expected across the southern Sangre
De Cristo mountains from near La Veta Pass south to the New Mexico
border this afternoon through Tuesday morning. West winds will gust
up to 75 mph over the mountains, with gusts to around 50 mph
spreading into the southern I-25 corridor from Walsenburg to the
Raton Pass early Tuesday morning.

Over the I-25 corridor and the plains along the New Mexico border,
including Colorado Springs, Pueblo and Trinidad, critical fire
weather conditions are forecast for this afternoon, as the
combination of gusty winds and low relative humidity will increase
the fire danger.

Over the mountains, snow will break out over the higher peaks along
the Continental Divide toward sunset, then gradually spread across
the remainder of the mountains and interior valleys by early Tuesday
morning. Snow will become heavy at times after midnight, especially
along the Continental Divide, where the combination of snow and
strong winds will create difficult travel over high mountain

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Snow is expected to continue through Tuesday morning and into
Tuesday afternoon, especially in higher terrain, to include the
Palmer Divide and the Raton Mesa. Wind driven snow and decreased
visibility could create hazardous travel conditions on Tuesday
morning, especially on the I-25 corridor and through mountain

Critical fire weather conditions are possible for Friday
afternoon, with continued chances for snow in our higher terrain
on Friday as well.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be possible over portions of the region.
