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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A wind storm is expected to affect parts of the region starting
tonight. The greatest threat for damaging winds will occur from
later this evening into the early morning hours Friday. The greatest
threat areas will be all of the southern mountains, especially the
east slopes of Pikes Peak, the east slopes of the Rampart Range, the
Wet Mountains and the Southern Sangre De Cristo mountains. These
strong winds will then push out east onto the plains during the pre-
dawn hours Friday. The greatest impact areas on the plains will
occur across northern El Paso county, and then areas from Colorado
City southward to the New Mexico border. THIS HAS THE POTENTIAL TO
BE A DANGEROUS WIND STORM. Wind gusts above hurricane force are
expected. Travel on I-25 later tonight will be extremely difficult.
The probability of tractor trailers being blow over will be
extremely high.

Snow will develop along the Continental Divide late tonight. Wind
driven snow will make travel across the mountain passes difficult.
Several inches of new snow is likely across the central mountains
with lesser amounts over the San Juans.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Dangerous travel conditions are expected to occur over most of
Friday due to strong west winds, gusting anywhere from 70 to over
100 mph. The strongest winds are expected to occur over the southern
I-25 corridor. High-profile vehicles are extremely likely to get
blown off of the roads and tipped over. These conditions will last
through Friday evening.

Critical Fire Weather conditions are expected over most of the
eastern plains Friday afternoon, due to fairly dry conditions and
the intense winds. Conditions will be very favorable for the rapid
spread and intensification of any fires. Blowing dust over the
plains and I-25 may also reduce visibility, further impeding travel.

Snow and blowing snow are expected over the higher elevations of the
Continental Divide and the eastern San Juan Mountains on Friday as
well, leading to hazardous travel, especially over mountain passes.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

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