Washington County Hazardous Weather Outlook

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

.DAY ONE…This Afternoon and Tonight

Light to moderate snow showers are expected in the mountains this
afternoon and evening. The heavier showers may have some thunders
associated with them. Total accumulations will be 2 to 6 inches
through late tonight. Across the 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.
