Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees cooler than yesterday,
after a cold front pushed through the area overnight. Clouds along
the foothills early this morning will also keep temperatures from
climbing too rapidly this morning. However, the airmass over
northeast Colorado remains moist today, and by afternoon, heating
of the day will cause the airmass to become unstable. Scattered
thunderstorms are expected to develop over the Front Range
Foothills by early afternoon and then move out onto the plains
through the afternoon and evening. There will be a Marginal Risk
that thunderstorms become severe today with large hail, damaging
winds and locally heavy rain showers. Light winds aloft will cause
storms that develop to be slow moving. Thunderstorm activity on
the plains is expected to last well into the evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Thursday through Tuesday

Isolated to scattered late day showers and thunderstorms are
expected mainly from the Continental Divide eastward on Thursday.
Only isolated late day shower and thunderstorm coverage is
expected on Friday. Saturday and Sunday look to be hot and dry.
Isolated late day showers and thunderstorms will return on Monday
and Tuesday.


Spotter activation may be necessary this afternoon and evening.
