Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

…SNOW IN AND NEAR THE MOUNTAINS, FRONT RANGE, AND I-25
CORRIDOR…

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

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Snow will continue across the mountains and foothills through this
afternoon, but gradually decrease along the I-25 Corridor. Snow
will end in most areas this evening, except the I-70 Corridor
through the mountains where generally light snow will continue
overnight. Total snow accumulations are expected to range between
2 and 4 inches across the Denver metro area and Palmer Divide, to
3 to 8 inches in the foothills (heaviest in Jefferson County), to
7 to 13 inches in the I-70 mountain corridor including much of
Summit County.

Some roads will be snow covered, so travelers should be prepared
to slow and slick conditions, especially in the mountains and
foothills.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Monday through Saturday

Snow showers will develop during the latter half of the day on
Monday and continue through much of Monday night. Light to moderate
snowfall totals are expected with the I-70 corridor mountains and
the foothills south and west of Denver seeing the highest amounts.
The Monday evening commute could see poor travel conditions in the
Denver metro.

Another system arrives late Wednesday and into Thursday with snow
possible across all of north-central and northeast Colorado. At
this time, snowfall amounts and travel impacts look minimal with
this system.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT…

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
