PORTIONS OF THE ADJACENT PLAINS AND PALMER DIVIDE…

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

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

A storm system will bring a period of snowfall to the mountains
and foothills this afternoon and evening, then decrease after
midnight. In the mountains storm totals will range from 3 to 9
inches, possibly heavy at times later this afternoon and
evening.

Across the urban corridor and northeast plains, a cold front will
push into the area from the northeast this afternoon. A mix of
rain and snow late this afternoon will change over to snow by this
evening. Snow could be heavy this evening with snowfall rates up
to 2 inch per hour, especially from Denver southward. The snow
should start to taper off after midnight. Storm totals will range
from 1 to 4 inches, with locally higher amounts possible near the
foothills and over the Palmer Divide.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Monday through Saturday

Areas of snow will continue in the mountains Monday morning with
up to 2 inches of additional snowfall. For the Front Range and
eastern plains, light snow may linger into the early morning
hours, though should be done by 8 AM. Patchy fog will also be
possible Monday morning.

For Tuesday through Saturday, a dry and mild pattern will prevail,
with a couple dry frontal passages expected. This may start to
increase fire weather concerns across the plains depending on how
much snow is received tonight into Monday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT…

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. However
reports of heavy snowfall will be appreciated.
