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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Areas of snow and blowing snow will continue across northern El
Paso County early this afternoon and then diminish late. Wind
speeds of 20 to 40 mph will cause poor visibilities at times.

Areas of heavy snow will continue to fall across the southern
Sangre De Cristo Mountains, Huerfano and western Las Animas
Counties early this afternoon and then diminish late. Strong
winds, gusting to near 50 mph at times, will cause areas of
blowing snow and poor visibilities.

Very strong winds of 30 to 50 gusting to 60 mph are expected
across all of the plains east of the I-25 corridor through the
afternoon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Another Pacific storm system will move across the region Saturday
night through Sunday. This system may bring accumulating snow to
the mountains, with some light accumulations possible over the
higher elevations of the Southeast Plains, especially for areas
above 6500 feet.

Yet another storm system may affect the region from Monday night
through Wednesday. There remains quite a bit of uncertainty on
where this storm will eventually track. However, there is a
chance of significant snowfall for the mountains and the
possibility of snow over the plains above 6000 feet during
the midweek time period.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will
be likely today across most of east central and southeast
