Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

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

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Weather will be relatively benign today as high pressure over most
of Colorado keeps winds in check. By this afternoon, clouds will
begin increasing over the mountains again as some Pacific
moisture arrives. Light snow is expected to develop tonight along
with a resurgence in gusty winds over the mountain passes and
ridges. Up to a few inches of new accumulation are expected by
Monday morning, mainly over Rabbit Ears Pass and the Park and Gore
Ranges. Mountain wind gusts could be up to 50 mph, causing areas
of blowing and drifting snow.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Monday through Saturday

There will be a good chance of snow in the mountains Monday
morning. Gusty winds will produce areas of blowing snow. Elsewhere
it will be dry with gusty winds spreading from the foothills
across the plains Monday afternoon and night.

Tuesday will be dry with gusty winds continuing over the higher
terrain. Another weather system will affect the mountains late
Wednesday through Friday with another chance of snow.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT…

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
