Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

…Strong winds expected late Friday night and Saturday…

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Areas of fog and a chance of freezing drizzle will occur over the
eastern part of the plains, near the Nebraska border, through
early this afternoon. Roads may get icy in spots, especially over
bridges and overpasses. Elsewhere across the plains, it will be
mostly cloudy with patchy fog. Not as cold with highs in the mid
20s to mid 30s. Further west, areas of light snow will develop
over the mountains of western Jackson and Western Grand counties
late tonight. An upper level disturbance will pass along border of
eastern Colorado this afternoon then exit to the northeast.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Friday through Wednesday

A strong weather system will move into the area Friday, lifting
northeast into the northern Great Plains Saturday. This will
bring some snow to the mountains, perhaps 3 to 6 inches, however
the main impact for the forecast area will be strong winds. There
is a threat of strong and damaging winds over the Front Range
Mountains, foothills and the northeast plains Friday night and
Saturday, with possible speeds of up to 75 mph in the mountains,
and up to 65 mph over the northeast plains. With the recent
snowstorm, this could cause reduced visibility in the
aforementioned areas due to blowing snow on the ground. There
will also be a chance of rain and snow showers Friday evening
close to the northern Colorado border.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
