THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTHEAST AND NORTH CENTRAL
COLORADO.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

AN AREA OF RAIN WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE SLOWLY EAST ACROSS THE
NORTHEAST PLAINS THIS AFTERNOON. ANOTHER ROUND OF SHOWERS AND
A FEW THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND SPREAD
INTO THE FRONT RANGE CITIES DURING THE AFTERNOON. RAINFALL MAY BE
PERSISTENT...BUT WILL MAINLY BE LIGHT. A FEW OF THE HEAVIER
SHOWERS COULD STILL PRODUCE ENOUGH RAIN TO CAUSE MINOR FLOODING.
THE SNOW LEVEL WILL BE BETWEEN 10 AND 11 THOUSAND FEET WITH A FEW
INCHES OF SNOW ACCUMULATING ABOVE TIMBERLINE. THE MOUNTAIN PASSES
WILL MAINLY BE WET BUT COULD HAVE SOME SLUSH AT TIMES.

PRECIPITATION WILL GRADUALLY DECREASE OVERNIGHT WITH AREAS OF FOG
DEVELOPING.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

THE COOL AND WET WEATHER PATTERN IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE THROUGH
THIS WEEKEND. MOIST SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL CONTINUE THURSDAY
AND FRIDAY WITH DAYTIME HEATING CAUSING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
TO DEVELOP. TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOLER THAN NORMAL. THE THREAT OF
SEVERE WEATHER WILL BE MINIMAL...BUT LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL
BE POSSIBLE EACH DAY WHICH MAY CAUSE SOME FLOODING PROBLEMS.

OVER THE WEEKEND...AN UPPER LEVEL WEATHER DISTURBANCE IS FORECAST
TO MOVE ACROSS THE STATE WHICH WILL INCREASE THE COVERAGE AND
INTENSITY OF RAINFALL. THIS WEATHER SYSTEM WILL BRING EVEN COOLER
TEMPERATURES TO THE STATE...DROPPING SNOW LEVELS DOWN TO THE
LOWER FOOTHILLS. PERIODS OF ACCUMULATING SNOW IN THE MOUNTAINS
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY WILL EXTEND DOWN TO FOOTHILL LOCATIONS FROM
FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON. TRAVEL IN THE MOUNTAINS MAY
BECOME DIFFICULT AT TIMES DUE TO SNOW COVERED ROADS.

A DRYING TREND IS EXPECTED EARLY NEXT WEEK AS AN UPPER RIDGE
BUILDS OVER UTAH AND WESTERN COLORADO. TEMPERATURES WILL ALSO
GRADUALLY RETURN TO SEASONAL NORMALS.
