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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow will increase in coverage across the Continental Divide this
afternoon, with light to moderate snow expected through tonight.
Snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches, can be expected across the
Eastern San Juan Mountains, with snowfall 2 to 6 inches across
the rest of the higher terrain of Continental Divide. Locally
higher amounts up to a foot will be possible, especially across
the favored southwest slopes of Eastern San Mountains. In
addition, gusty southwest winds of 20 to 40 mph will create
hazardous travel conditions across the high mountain passes of the
Continental Divide, in blowing and drifting snow.

Snow is expected to spread north and east across the high mountain
valleys through the Eastern Mountains and Plains this evening and
into early Saturday morning, with accumulations of 1 to 3 inches
possible, especially north of the Highway 50 Corridor. Precipitation
across the far Southeast Plains could start out as light freezing
drizzle this evening, though would quickly turn over to snow, as
the upper level weather system moves across the state.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Another quick moving weather system could bring generally light
accumulating snowfall to the higher terrain, especially along
the Continental Divide Saturday night and Sunday. Drier and warmer
weather remains in the offing for Monday and early Tuesday, before
another weather system brings chances of accumulating snowfall
areawide through the middle of next week.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters can
be expected today across the Continental Divide, and across all
of south central and southeast Colorado tonight.
