...LATE SPRING STORM TO BRING HEAVY SNOW TO THE FRONT RANGE
MOUNTAINS, FOOTHILLS, AND URBAN CORRIDOR FRIDAY AND SATURDAY...

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Very dry, warm, and windy conditions will prevail today with
critical fire weather across South Park, the Front Range
Foothills east across the Urban Corridor and eastern plains.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

A late season snow storm will bring much colder temperatures and
rain and snow to the mountains late tonight and continue through
Saturday. The Front Range Mountains and Foothills above 7000 feet
will see significant snowfall amounts which should produce
hazardous travel conditions, tree damage, and possible power
outages. The lower elevations will most likely see rain initially
with a changeover to snow sometime Saturday morning. There is the
potential for several inches of snow to fall across parts of the
Front Range Urban Corridor and Palmer Divide which could lead to
downed power lines and tree damage. However, there is still quite
a bit of uncertainty in the snowfall amounts in these areas. In
addition, temperatures will drop significantly Saturday night and
Sunday night with sub- freezing lows possible.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
