Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central
Colorado.

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Snow and blowing snow will impact the northeast plains through
this evening and into the overnight hours Sunday morning, with an
additional 2-5″ of snow possible, especially along I-76. Strong
northerly winds up to 45 mph are possible northeast of a line from
Akron to Sterling. Travel may become very difficult, especially
this afternoon with near blizzard conditions on the far northeast
plains.

Elsewhere, including the I-25 urban corridor, Greeley, and the
east slope foothills, expect light snow to continue through today
with an additional inch, maybe two inches through late this
evening. Blowing and drifting snow may occur east of I-25 this
afternoon for a brief time and travelers along I-70 and I-25
should prepare for slick spots.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Sunday through Friday

Strong northwesterly winds will blow across the high mountain
passes and northeastern plains Sunday, with gusts of 35 to 45 mph.
This will produce areas of blowing and drifting snow. These winds
will gradually decrease Sunday night into Monday.

Then next chance for snow will be with a weather system that will
pass late Wednesday or early Thursday. Light to moderate snow is
likely in the mountains, with just a slight chance of light snow
on the plains.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT…

Reports of snowfall or low visibilities will be appreciated.
