Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

…Heavy snow will continue in the mountains, with snow developing
across the I-25 corridor and adjacent plains this evening…

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

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Moderate to heavy snowfall will continue in the mountains
through tonight. The heaviest snowfall will be along northwest
facing slopes. Strong gusty winds up to 60 mph at times will
create blowing and drifting snow producing low visibilities so
travel could be difficult to impossible. Winds will also cause
wind chill temperatures of 25 to 30 degrees below zero. Travelers
and outdoor enthusiasts should be prepared and traveling with
emergency kits.

It will be dry and warmer across the I-25 corridor and northeast
plains this afternoon. Snow will become likely for much of the
urban corridor and adjacent plains later this evening, with
localized bands of heavier snowfall possible after 8 pm.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Friday through Wednesday

Snow, heavy at times, will continue in the mountains Friday. Total
snow amounts for the mountains of 1 to 3 feet are expected. Across
the Front Range and eastern plains, areas of snow will develop
with bands of heavy snow. Snowfall is expected to greatly vary
across the lower elevations due to the bands of heavy snow. A
general 3 to 6 inches of snow are expected, locally higher
amounts of 8 to 10 inches will be possible. Roads are expected to
be snow covered and slippery Friday.

After a dry period late Friday night and Saturday, snow will
return to the mountains Saturday night and continue into Sunday.
Some light snow will be possible along the Front Range and over
the eastern plains Sunday.
