...High Wind Watch for Portions of Northeast Colorado
...Snow and Strong Gusty Winds in the High Country
   Tonight and Wednesday Morning...

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Snow and strong gusty winds will develop tonight in the high
country with a powerful jet stream moving over the area. Snowfall
will be generally light, although some of the high mountain passes
and west facing slopes could see moderate snowfall late tonight.
Mountain snow totals by morning will range from 2 to 5 inches,
with lighter amounts on the valley floors. Gusty northwest winds
of 40 to 55 mph may also produce areas of blowing snow over
higher elevations late tonight, creating difficult travel
conditions. East of the mountains, dry and mild weather will
persist through tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Snow and windy conditions will continue over the mountain passes
Wednesday morning before decreasing in the afternoon. Expect an
additional 1 to 4 inches of snow. On the plains, strong and gusty
northwest winds are expected to develop Wednesday morning and
last through much of the day. The strongest winds should stay east
of the Interstate 25 corridor where gusts of 40 to 60 MPH may
also produce areas of blowing dust. The northern Front Range
foothills could also experience similar winds. Drivers of
lightweight and high profile vehicles will be especially
vulnerable to the strong, gusty winds.

Dry and warmer weather are expected to return for the end of the
week and through the weekend except for a chance of snow on Friday
and Saturday over the mountains.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
