central...south central and southeast Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Rain and snow will continue to spread across the southeast plains
with snow levels wavering around 6000 feet. Locally intense
snowfall will be possible above this elevation under the heavier
precipitation bands tonight with snowfall rates of an inch or two
an hour. Additional snowfall amounts of 1 to 5 inches will be

south of Colorado City as well as the northern slopes of the Raton
Ridge. The Pikes Peak region, Wets and southern Sangre De Cristo
could see an additional 2 to 7 inches. Strong north winds 20 to 40
mph will cause areas of poor visibility blowing snow, mainly
during the heavier snowfall due to the heavy wet nature to the
snow.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Friday morning, some light accumulations of snow will still be
possible over the eastern facing slopes of the southern Sangre de
Cristo mountains and Raton Mesa until noon.

Winds increase across the region for Saturday and again for Monday
and Tuesday with near critical fire weather conditions possible
across the plains depending on how much rain falls with the
current system and the condition of the fuels.

For Tuesday night and Wednesday, light accumulating snow will be
possible along the Continental Divide.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely across the higher terrain of south central and southeast
Colorado and portions of the I-25 corridor through tonight.
