THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL BRING VERY WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS FOR
THIS TIME OF YEAR. A LEE SURFACE TROUGH IN WYOMING WILL KEEP LIGHT
SOUTHERLY AND SOUTHWESTERLY WINDS OVER THE PLAINS OF COLORADO
THROUGH THIS EVENING...INCREASING OVERNIGHT AND BEGINNING TO TURN
WESTERLY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

AN APPROACHING WEATHER SYSTEM WILL BRING A CHANCE OF AFTERNOON AND
EVENING SHOWERS WITH A FEW EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS WEDNESDAY.
THESE WILL BEGIN DRY AND HIGH BASED WITH GUSTY OUTFLOW WINDS THE
MAIN IMPACT. A COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON TO HELP
PRECIPITATION LIKELY REACH THE GROUND BY THE EVENING. DRY AIR AND
GUSTY WINDS AHEAD OF THIS FRONT MAY CREATE FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS.
UPSLOPE FLOW OVERNIGHT AND COLDER AIR FILTERING IN WILL LOWER SNOW
LEVELS TO NEAR 6000 FT MSL.

EARLY THURSDAY MORNING...UPSLOPE FLOW AND GOOD DYNAMICS ALOFT WILL
BRING RAIN AND SNOW TO MOST OF NORTHEASTERN COLORADO. SNOW LEVELS
WILL FLIRT WITH THE SURFACE OVER THE PLAINS...WITH A SNOW/RAIN MIX
LIKELY THROUGH MOST OF THE DAY...THEN BECOME ALL SNOW BY EVENING.
BANDING WILL BE LIKELY WHICH CAN INCREASE TOTALS DRAMATICALLY IN A
RELATIVELY SMALL AREA. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS ARE VERY DIFFICULT TO PIN
DOWN AT THIS POINT BUT WITH SUCH WARM GROUND TEMPERATURES...MOST
AREAS OVER THE PLAINS WILL SEE LESS THAN TWO INCHES AND AREAS
CLOSER TO THE FOOTHILLS AND PALMER DIVIDE MAY SEE 2 TO 4 INCHES
POSSIBLE. HOWEVER...WHERE BANDS SET UP...SMALL AREAS COULD SEE
UPWARDS OF 6 INCHES. TRAVELERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF QUICKLY CHANGING
CONDITIONS INCLUDING LOW VISIBILITY THURSDAY AFTERNOON INTO THE
EVENING UNDER THESE BANDS. SNOW WILL IMPACT MAINLY THE FRONT RANGE
MOUNTAINS AND FOOTHILLS...WITH AMOUNTS IN THE 5 TO 12 INCH RANGE
POSSIBLE...HIGHLY VARIABLE DUE TO THE BANDING POTENTIAL. SNOW WILL
LIKELY DIMINISH FRIDAY MORNING. WITH COLDER TEMPERATURES
EXPECTED...ROADS THURSDAY NIGHT INTO FRIDAY MAY BE ICY.

THE WEEKEND WILL FEATURE WARMING AND DRYING AS AN UPPER RIDGE
MOVES IN.
