Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

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

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Snow showers with a few embedded thunderstorms will occur in the
mountains. Storm totals will be quite variable, ranging anywhere
from 2 to 6 inches by late tonight. Across the urban corridor and
northeast plains, scattered rain showers along with a few
thunderstorms can be expected this afternoon and evening. The best
chance of thunderstorms will be east of line from around Sterling
to Castle Rock. The storms could produce brief small hail, gusty
winds to 40 mph along with cloud to ground lightning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Tuesday through Sunday

A few light snow showers will linger over the mountains through
the middle of the week, mainly on the ridges north of Berthoud
Pass. The plains will have mild temperatures and will be breezy at
times. A vigorous weather system is expected to bring snow to the
mountains and rain to the plains about Friday, possibly starting
Thursday night or lingering into Saturday. There is a chance it
could be just cold enough for a little snow in areas east of the
mountains Saturday morning if the weather system has not moved
eastward by then.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT…

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
