Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

This hazardous weather outlook is for northeast and north central

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

No significant weather is expected. Cloudiness will partially
dissipate this afternoon, followed by better clearing overnight.
Highs will be in the 50s over much of the urban corridor and
northeast plains.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Wednesday through Monday

Warm and dry conditions across the plains with strong southerly
winds will increase fire weather concerns across Elbert and
Lincoln counties. Isolated thunderstorms may occur across the
mountains Wednesday afternoon, spreading onto the northern plains
late afternoon into the evening. Main hazards would be lightning
and strong gusty winds.

A strong storm system will push across the area Thursday, with
rain changing over to snow across the plains, and strong
northerly winds gusting up to 40 mph. Widespread snow in the
mountains will likely be heaviest along the Front Range mountains
and foothills, mainly north of I-70. Moderate snow amounts are
expected across the plains with localized areas of heavy snow.
Precipitation will decrease quickly in the evening with cold
overnight lows in the teens to single digits.

Lighter mountain snow showers will still occur Friday, with a
chance over the urban corridor. After warmer and drier conditions
Saturday and Sunday, another system will bring additional
precipitation and colder temperatures Sunday into Monday.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
