.UPDATE...
Issued at 812 PM MST Sun Jan 22 2017

A strong west to southwest flow aloft will transport Pacific 
moisture to Colorado tonight. Radar showing snow increasing over 
western Colorado. Current observations and web cameras showing 
just light snow in places. Expect snow to increase over the 
mountains through the night as the airmass moistens. A few inches 
of snow will be possible over the north central mountains by 
Monday morning. East of the mountains, mid and high clouds will 
blanket the area. Expect this to keep temperatures from falling 
much with lows in the 20s. Forecast in good shape and will make 
minor tweaks to line up with current conditions.
