Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

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

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

North winds gusting to 40 to 55 mph will start to slowly decrease
mid to late afternoon. Light snow will fall across part of the
plains, with accumulations up to 3 inches. Snow and blowing snow
will reduce visibility to less than a mile at times. Roads may
also become snow covered and icy in places resulting in slow
travel.

The strong winds will keep wind chills in the single digits
today, and even with lighter winds tonight wind chills will be
near or below zero.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Wednesday through Monday

Light snow will fall over the high mountains Wednesday night into
Thursday, with mostly clear skies and weak warming over the
plains. Northwesterly winds will increase over the plains Thursday
with speeds of 20 mph gusting to 35 mph. Temperatures will then
warm to nearly 10 degrees above normal into the weekend. Dry
weather is expected until a potent system off the Pacific pushes
snow into the mountains Sunday and then over the plains Monday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT…

Snowfall reports from spotters will be appreciated.
