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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Light to moderate snow will continue across the Continental Divide
today into tonight, with periods of moderate to heavy snow possible
late this afternoon into this evening. Snow covered roads with
reductions in visibility can be expected, especially over the Wolf
Creek, Fremont, and Monarch passes.

Snow is then expected to spill into the San Luis Valley, southeast
mountains, and parts of the I-25 corridor this evening. During this
time, a brief period of moderate, possibly heavy, bursts of snow are
possible. While amounts may be light, potentially higher snowfall
rates could support hazardous driving conditions. Lastly, there is a
low chance for a small window of light freezing rain or freezing
drizzle across the far eastern plains late tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Breezy westerly winds of 25 to 45 mph, strongest over and near
the higher terrain, and associated dry air moving into the region
will allow for near critical fire weather conditions to develop
across portions of the I-25 Corridor through the far southeast
Plains late Thursday morning and into Thursday afternoon. Near
critical fire weather conditions will again be possible across
portions of the southeast Plains on Friday.

Another round of moderate to locally heavy snowfall will be
possible across the higher terrain along the Continental Divide
Sunday night and Monday. Snow chances spread east across the high
mountain valleys through the eastern mountains through the day
Monday, with breezy to windy conditions once again bringing the
potential for critical fire weather conditions to the southeast
Plains on Monday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

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