Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

There will be a chance of light snow in the mountains tonight with
accumulations of an inch or two in some areas. Winds will increase
over the mountain ridges and higher east slopes of the Front
Range. Gusts up to 60 mph will produce localized blowing and
drifting snow.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Thursday through Tuesday

The next storm system is expected to move into the mountains
Thursday night and continue through much of the weekend with snow
and winds causing blowing snow issues. Abundant moisture from the
eastern Pacific will be brought into Colorado by a strong jet
stream which will produce nearly continuous snowfall through most
of the weekend. It is difficult at this time to determine snowfall
amounts, however significant snow accumulations are possible in
the high country as the snow stacks up over a three day period.

The plains will have a slight chance of snow from Friday night
through Saturday and then an increased chance of snow Saturday
night and Sunday with a frontal passage. At this time the
snowfall looks light, though there is a bit of uncertainty.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
