Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Light snow is expected in the mountains today, especially south of
the I-70 corridor and over Park County. Snow accumulations up to 3
inches will occur by this afternoon. Areas of rain or rain mixed
with snow may spread onto the adjacent plains late this afternoon
and evening. After the sun goes down, areas of precipitation on
the plains will change to snow. Accumulations over the lower
elevations should be less than an inch, except for the Palmer
Divide which could see up to a couple inches. Drier air will move
into the state tonight which will cause skies over northeast
Colorado to clear out. Mountain areas may continue to see light
snow due to moisture being trapped in the valleys.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Thursday through Tuesday

Light snow will continue in the mountains through Thursday and
into early Friday with 1 to 3 inches possible. The plains will
remain dry Thursday and Friday with highs in the 40s and 50s. A
warm-up will start Saturday with highs increasing into the 60s
and close to 70 by Sunday, under mostly sunny skies.

The next chance for snow across the region will begin Monday and
stretch through Tuesday. Temperatures will decrease sharply from
the weekend with highs possibly dipping into the 20s by Tuesday.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
