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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Critical fire weather conditions are imminent over the region today
into tonight as an intense Pacific storm moves directly over the
region. Southwest winds of 20 to 40 mph with gusts to 55 mph are
anticipated over nearly the entire region. Please do not burn today
or do anything that could cause a spark.

Snow will develop this evening over the central mountains and push
east. 5 to 10 inches of snow will be possible over the central
mountains, with most of the activity occurring north of Cottonwood
Pass. A brief period of heavy snow will be possible over the
northern El Paso county late tonight as the low moves over the state
of Colorado.

An isolated rumble of thunder will be possible, especially
tonight over the plains. There is a low chance of a strong to
severe thunderstorm occurring, with the main threat being wind
gusts to 60 to 70 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Damaging winds with northerly gusts in excess of 60 mph along
with blowing dust will be possible across the far eastern plains
on Tuesday, which could lead to dangerous travel conditions across
area roadways. Light and high profile vehicles will be especially
at risk, particularly through west, east oriented roadways, to
include highway 50. Critical fire weather conditions are also
expected across the southern I-25 corridor on Tuesday as well,
where winds gusting to 45 mph are possible. Please avoid activities
that could start a fire!

Snow over the central mountains continues through most of Tuesday,
before coming to an end Tuesday evening. Rain and snow chances
return for portions of the area through the second half of the
week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather spotters will not be needed today or tonight.
