This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight
Snow showers over the mountains will continue today, with coverage
and intensity increasing this afternoon. Snow accumulations up to
3 inches will occur by late this afternoon. Over the plains, light
snow will continue over the higher elevations of the Cheyenne and
Palmer Ridges with little accumulation expected. A cold push will
move in late this afternoon into the evening to bring snow showers
across the rest of the plains. Accumulations over the lower
elevations should be up to an inch, except for the Palmer Divide
which could see up to a few inches. There could be some localized
areas over the plains as well that see higher amounts as well due
to the showery nature of the snow. Drier air will then move into
the state later tonight which will cause skies over northeast
Colorado to clear out. Mountain areas may continue to see light
snow due to moisture being trapped in the valleys.
.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Thursday through Tuesday
Light snow will continue in the mountains through Thursday and
into early Friday with up to 3 inches possible. A few snow showers
may develop off the higher terrain and over the eastern plains
Thursday afternoon and evening. The Palmer Divide could see
around an inch of snow with just a trace expected elsewhere across
the Urban Corridor and eastern plains.
After a warm and dry weekend, there will be a good chance for
snow across the region Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures will
decrease sharply from the weekend with highs dipping into the 20s
and 30s early next week.
.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT…
Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
