Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

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

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Snow showers will become likely in the mountains this afternoon
with an isolated thunderstorm possible. Across the plains it will
be mild and dry, with elevated fire danger, mainly near the
Wyoming, Nebraska border due to gusty winds.

For tonight, snow will continue in the mountains with gusty winds
and blowing snow over the higher passes. 2 to 6 inches of snow
will be possible overnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Thursday through Tuesday

Light snow showers, gusty winds, and slick roads will linger in
the mountains Thursday morning. On the plains, a cold front will
bring cooler temperatures and gusty winds, along with isolated
showers behind the frontal passage.

For Friday and Friday night, more widespread precipitation can be
expected, most of it falling in the form of snow. However,
accumulations in most areas will be light. The precipitation may
start off as light freezing drizzle on the plains Friday morning,
but road temperatures should be warm enough to prevent any icing.

Drier and somewhat warmer weather conditions will likely return by
Saturday, before the weather returns to a colder and unsettled
pattern by Monday and Tuesday when snow makes a return to the
forecast.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT…

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
