Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

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

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

An upper level disturbance moving across Colorado will create
gusty winds this afternoon up to 60 mph over the mountains and
foothills and up to 40 mph over the western I-25 corridor and
Palmer Divide. Tonight, winds will become more confined to the
foothills and adjacent plains with strong gusts possibly reaching
as high as 75 mph. Otherwise, snow will fall over the mountains
tonight with light accumulations.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Thursday through Tuesday

Light snow over the mountains Thursday, with 1 to 3 inches of
accumulation, may spread out over the plains during the evening.
Better dynamics will bring a better chance for snow to the plains
Friday, before snow quickly shuts off west to east Friday night.
Gusty west winds in the foothills will likely be left in its wake.
A persistent weather pattern will set up this weekend and into
next week that will bring near to slightly below normal
temperatures along with light snow to the mountains through the
period, while keeping the plains mainly dry.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT…

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
