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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow is expected to return to the Continental Divide starting this
afternoon, then increase in intensity and coverage through the
evening. The areas that are forecast to receive the greatest
snowfall amounts will be the higher elevations of the Eastern San
Juan mountains and the Eastern Sawatch mountains, and snowfall is
forecast to continue through Wednesday.

In addition, west to southwest winds will strengthen and become
gusty at times across the higher terrain beginning this afternoon,
with gusts of 35 to 50 mph possible. These strong winds, coupled
with the heavier snowfall tonight, will create areas of blowing snow
and hazardous driving conditions.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Snow will continue across the mountains on Wednesday before
tapering off Wednesday night. Storm totals of 5 to 10 inches will
be possible across the eastern San Juan mountains with 3 to 8
inches across the eastern Sawatch range. Accumulations of 1 to 3
inches can be expected across the higher elevations of the
Sangre De Cristo mountains. Strong westerly winds will gust up to
40 to 50 mph with areas of blowing snow across the higher peaks
and passes Wednesday and Wednesday night.

Another storm system will move across the area Thursday night
through Friday night bringing the potential for moderate to heavy
snow for the Continental Divide. Depending on how quickly the
storm intensifies, light to moderate snowfall will be possible
for the southeast mountains and portions of the plains with the
best chance along the Palmer Divide and Raton Ridge on Friday.
Strong north winds will be possible with this storm with the
potential for gusts up to around 50 mph if the system intensifies
rapidly enough. The storm track and strength are still prone to
change, so please continue to monitor the latest forecasts
concerning this developing storm.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely along the Continental Divide tonight.
