this afternoon…
…High Wind Warning in effect for the mountains, foothills and
northeast plains through this afternoon…

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE…This Afternoon and Tonight

Strong winds will continue over the Front Range Mountains,
foothills, and northeast plains through this afternoon with peak
wind gusts from 50 to 70 mph. Ground blizzards from blowing and
drifting snow are likely in exposed areas and may result in road
closures at times. High profile vehicles will be in danger of
blowing over, especially along north-south oriented roads. Strong
winds coupled with light to moderate snowfall can be expected in
the mountains, with additional accumulation of 2 to 5 inches
possible through late this afternoon.

Strong winds will occur as a storm system intensifies over
Nebraska today. Those with plans to travel today should delay or
alter them due to the expected strong winds and blowing snow.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Sunday through Friday

The weather will warm up and dry out Sunday and Monday. Winds won’t be
as strong as Saturday, but will remain breezy over the
mountains. Some light snow expected over the mountains Monday
night into Tuesday as an upper level disturbance moves across.
Lower elevations will remain dry. Another weak system will bring
light snow to the mountains Wednesday night into Thursday.
Temperatures will remain around seasonal normals through the week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT…

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight, but snow
and wind gusts reports would be greatly appreciated.
