…MIXED BAG OF WINTRY PRECIPITATION TODAY…

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

After a little freezing drizzle near the Wyoming border early this
morning, snow showers will spread north across much of the
forecast area. There will be many breaks in the precipitation,
and most of the snow on the plains will be light. However, the
snow will become more persistent and heavier over the northeast
corner of the state this evening. Areas of light freezing drizzle
will likely redevelop for a few hours this afternoon, mainly
along the Palmer Divide and points east toward Limon and Akron.

Total snow accumulations of 3 to 5 inches of snow will be
possible in Sedgwick and Phillips Counties where a Winter Weather
Advisory is in effect through tonight. Meanwhile, the I-25 Urban
Corridor will only see a dusting to 1 inch of snow in the grass.
Mountain areas will see more numerous snow showers with snowfall
amounts of 2 to 6 inches in most areas, although a few spots
around Rabbit Ears Pass could see as much as 10 inches. Travelers
should be prepared for variable road conditions and use caution
when encountering heavier snow showers and/or slushy roads.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Saturday through Thursday

Mountain areas will see scattered snow showers through Saturday
and Sunday, but any snow accumulations will be light. The plains
will be dry and warmer over the weekend. Additional light snow
is expected in the mountains Monday and Tuesday. The plains will
be mild with a slight chance of rain through Thursday.
