Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

A few severe thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon across
portions of northeast Colorado. The main threat will be along and
east of a dryline which is expected to set up from near Sterling
to Akron and Limon. Very large hail greater than 2 inches in
diameter and winds greater than 60 mph can be expected from the
strongest storms. Farther west, most of the Front Range should
remain dry through the day. However, there is a chance of
isolated strong or severe storms developing this evening if an
outflow boundary from the east is sufficiently strong.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Wednesday through Monday

Isolated to scattered afternoon thunderstorms are expected on the
eastern plains Wednesday afternoon. The main hazards will be
hail, brief heavy rain and strong outflow winds. Closer to the
foothills, only a slight chance of weaker storms with lightning
and gusty winds but little rainfall is expected.

From Thursday through the weekend, there will continue to be a
threat of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Severe weather is
not expected since the flow of deep, monsoonal moisture into
Colorado has been diminished by a progressive, westerly flow
pattern across the northern half of the country.


Spotter activation may be required across portions of the eastern
plains after 2 PM.
