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

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Light snow will continue over the higher mountains through
tonight, with scattered snow showers persisting in the valleys
west of the Front Range. Additional accumulations of 1 to 4 inches
can be expected through tonight, with locally higher amounts in
the Rabbit Ears Pass vicinity. West winds of 15 to 25 mph can be
expected this afternoon in the high country, then increase again
this evening with 30 to 50 mph gusts common above timberline.
Across the lower elevations, a few bouts of westerly gusts of 30
to 40 mph will be possible along the Boulder and Larimer county
foothills and along the Colorado and Wyoming border.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Monday through Saturday

Periods of light to moderate snow are expected in the mountains
and mountain valleys, as a series of upper level disturbances move

across the region on Monday with the best chance of accumulating
snowfall during the morning hours, then decreasing in the
afternoon and evening. This will be followed by another weak
system on Tuesday, and yet another one Thursday night into
Friday.

In the Front Range foothills and mountains east of the
Continental Divide, it could get very windy at times, with gusts
up to 60 mph possible. It will be dry for the most part across the
northeast plains with temperatures near to slightly above normal
for the upcoming week.
