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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight


Scattered snow showers developing late tonight may produce an inch
or two of snowfall over the higher peaks of the Sawatch and Western
Mosquito ranges by early Wednesday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

On Wednesday, an upper level storm system is forecast to drop
southeast across Colorado bringing with it moderate snowfall to
the Continental Divide and strong winds to the region. Snow
accumulations of 2 to 4 inches are possible with locally higher
amounts on northwest slopes, especially north of Cottonwood Pass.
Blowing snow may reduce visibilities over high mountain passes.
Over the Plains, winds will increase out of the northwest by mid
morning with gusts 40 to 50 mph through the afternoon. Winds
should subside by Wednesday evening and snow taper off through the
evening hours.

A series of upper level disturbances may bring periods of snow to
the Continental Divide over the weekend into early next week but
confidence is low on timing and storm track.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
possible late tonight in the Sawatch mountains and the western
Mosquito Range.
