This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...east
central...south central and southeast Colorado.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Light to moderate snowfall across most of South Central and
Southeast Colorado early this morning, will diminish from west to
east through the mid to late morning. Snow will ramp up again over
and near the higher terrain, especially over the Southern Mountains,
this afternoon, with light to moderate snow then expected to spread
north and east across the high valleys through the Southeast Plains
into tonight.

Additional snow accumulations through tonight of 4 to 8 inches can
be expected across the higher terrain, with local totals of a foot
possible across the Eastern San Juan and Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
Additional snow accumulations of 3 to 6 inches will be possible
across the San Luis Valley, with 2 to 4 inches across the Upper
Arkansas and Wet Mountain Valleys, and 1 to 3 inches across the I-25
Corridor through the far Southeast Plains.

In additional to the snow, a modified arctic airmass has spread into
the region overnight, with highs today only warming into the single
digits and teens areawide.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Occasional light snow will continue across the mountains from
Tuesday into early Wednesday morning, while snowfall tapers off to
flurries and snow showers at lower elevations and across the
eastern plains by Tuesday afternoon. Additional accumulations of
2 to 4 inches will be possible over the mountains Tuesday, while
lower elevations see generally 1 to 2 inches.

A new weather system over the western U.S. may bring more snow to
the mountains Thursday and Friday, especially along the Continental
Divide. A chance of snow will then spread across lower elevations
late Friday into Saturday.


Weather conditions that meet reporting criteria for spotters will be
likely today and tonight across all of South Central and Southeast
