POSSIBLE SATURDAY AFTERNOON. THE PRIMARY THREAT WITH ANY

10000 AND 11000 FEET THROUGH SATURDAY AND THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS

SNOWFALL WILL INCREASE IN COVERAGE AND INTENSITY FOR THE
CONTINENTAL DIVIDE REGION SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY AS A WEATHER
SYSTEM GLANCES BY TO THE WEST. ADDITIONAL LIGHT TO MODERATE
SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH STRONG SOUTHWEST WINDS
RESULTING IN WIND DRIVEN SNOW ACROSS THE HIGHER PEAKS AND
PASSES. THE HEAVIEST SNOWFALL IS EXPECTED TO IMPACT THE EASTERN
SAN JUAN MOUNTAINS...INCLUDING WOLF CREEK PASS.

THIS WEATHER SYSTEM WILL PRODUCE MAINLY STRONG WINDS FOR THE
SOUTHEAST MOUNTAINS AND PLAINS ON SUNDAY. THESE GUSTY WINDS MAY
RESULT IN CONDITIONS FAVORABLE FOR RAPID RATES OF FIRE SPREAD FOR

APPEARS LIKELY THAT A WIDESPREAD HARD FREEZE MAY OCCUR ACROSS
MOST OF THE PLAINS MONDAY NIGHT OR TUESDAY NIGHT.
