Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Warm and dry conditions will be replaced by much colder
temperatures and a return to wintry precipitation tonight. The
much colder temperatures will arrive behind a cold front this
evening, with a mixture of light freezing drizzle and snow
developing from north to south across the forecast area this
evening. Precipitation will first begin near the Wyoming and
Nebraska borders by 8 to 9 PM, and then spread southward into the
I-70 Corridor toward midnight. Total snow accumulations are
expected to range between 1 and 3 inches along and north of I-70
in the mountains and I-76 on the Plains, with an inch or less
farther south.

Roads are expected to turn icy and snow covered as temperatures
drop into the 15 to 20 degree range late tonight. Travelers late
tonight into the Monday morning commute should be prepared for
hazardous travel conditions and longer than normal commute times.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Monday through Saturday

Areas of light snow will be coming to an end Monday morning, but
cold temperatures will remain. Afternoon temperatures will remain
below freezing all day. Areas of fog will be possible across the
plains Monday night and Tuesday morning which may affect the
morning commute. Warmer temperatures are expected through the rest
of the week as a strong upper level ridge builds over the western
United States.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight. Any
freezing drizzle or snowfall reports will be appreciated.
