Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE…This Afternoon and Tonight

Another warm day in store with highs reaching into the mid-90s
across the plains and 70s in the high country. Scattered storms
are expected today across the region. Storms will initiate over
the higher terrain and move onto the adjacent plains by the late
afternoon hours. The main hazards from the storms will be brief
moderate to heavy rain, lightning and gusty winds up to 40 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Thursday through Tuesday

Thursday afternoon and evening will be fairly active with showers
and thunderstorms expected across the region. An upper level
disturbance combined with a very moist airmass will increase the
threat of heavy rain and elevate the potential for localized
flash flooding. The most susceptible areas would be in the burn
scars and areas with poor drainages. Right now, it appears the
heaviest rainfall may organize just to the east of the I-25
Corridor by Thursday evening. One or two storms could also be
severe over the northeast plains producing wind gusts to 60 mph
and one inch diameter hail.

The rest of the outlook period, temperatures will be near to
slightly below normal with a chance of afternoon and evening
thunderstorms each day.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
