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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Rain and higher elevations snow showers will develop across the
Continental Divide this through this evening, with showers
spreading east across the high mountains valleys through the
eastern plains tonight. Snow accumulations of 1 to 4 inches will
be possible above 9000 feet tonight, with the greatest amounts
expected across the Southwest and Central mountains.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

A strong early Spring storm is forecast to affect the region
through Wednesday evening. This storm will have the potential to
bring a couple of strong thunderstorms to the region Tuesday
afternoon. Wind gusts to 45 mph and small hail to half an inch in
diameter will be possible along with cloud to ground lightning.
Locally heavy rain will be possible. Any heavy rain that falls on
any of the burn scars will have the potential to cause flash
flooding, especially the Junkins, Beulah Hills and Hayden Pass
burn scars.

This storm is expected to bring heavy snow to the mountains,
especially the Wet Mountains and Sangre de Cristo Range. Deep
upslope flow is likely by late Tuesday afternoon, and heavy snow
is expected from late Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday afternoon.
Snowfall amounts will likely range between 2 and 3 feet in the
Wet and Sangre De Cristo mountains. The higher elevations in the
Pikes Peak region will likely see 10 to 18 inches. The rest of
the mountains and higher valleys will also see snow, with around 5
to 10 inches likely.

Snow across the lower elevations will depend on how where the rain
snow line develops. Current temperatures profiles indicate snow
levels will fall to around 6000 feet by Wednesday morning over the
Palmer Divide, into the Colorado Springs area. Areas over Monument
Hill into northern Colorado Springs will likely see 5 to 10 inches
of snowfall by Wednesday afternoon. Locations under 5000 feet will
likely see all rain, including Pueblo.

Further south, heavy snow will be possible over the southern
Interstate 25 corridor. Expected heavy precipitation is forecast
to drive the snow level down to the surface, and combine with
upslope flow to produce prolonged moderate to heavy snowfall.
Current forecast amounts of 5 to 10 inches are expected, but more
may be possible, especially along and west of Interstate 25.

Another potentially significant Spring storm is forecast to
affect all of the region Friday through Sunday. This storm will
also have the potential to bring another round of heavy snow to
the mountains and the higher elevations on the Plains.
Thunderstorms, some possibly strong, will be possible on Friday
on the plains. Heavier rainfall across the lower elevations are
expected with another 1 to 2 inches possible. Rivers and streams
will need to be monitored. The active weather pattern looks to
continue into early next week.

Please stay abreast of the latest weather forecast during this
week as the weather is forecast to become quite active.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible across the higher terrain tonight.

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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Next weather system will move into the Great Basin increasing
moisture over the state. Rain will be possible in the mountains by
this evening that will increase in coverage overnight. A few
inches of wet snow will be possible by the morning as the freezing
level drops with cooler air moving in.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

A couple storm systems are forecast to impact Colorado during the
upcoming week. The first of these systems may deposit several
inches of snow in the high country, southern foothills and
perhaps the palmer divide, as well as measurable rainfall for the
northeast plains of Colorado during the Tuesday-Wednesday time
period. Dry and warmer conditions should return to the area on
Thursday with a passing high pressure ridge. Then another
potentially stronger and colder Pacific storm system may produce
significant precipitation, mainly in the form of snow, beginning
late Friday and lasting through Saturday night. This storm system
bears watching, especially those of you planning travel during
this period.
