Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

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

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

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

Overnight, areas of light freezing drizzle are expected to
develop, mainly along the Palmer Divide and Cheyenne Ridge.
However, any impacts on travel should be minimized by warm
pavement temperatures.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Friday through Wednesday

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. On the plains, the
precipitation may start off as light freezing drizzle Friday
morning, but road temperatures should be warm enough to prevent
any icing. Mountain roads may see some snow or slush accumulation,
and areas of slick travel.

Drier and somewhat warmer weather conditions are expected to
return over the weekend and continue through Monday. A colder and
more unsettled weather pattern will return Tuesday and Wednesday
with more snow in the mountains and rain or snow on the plains.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT…

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
