Winter Weather Advisory - N&W Park County

Post by ParkBull » Wed Oct 09, 2019 5:17 pm

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Denver CO
317 PM MDT Wed Oct 9 2019

...SEASON'S FIRST SHOT OF WINTER COMING IN FAST WITH COLD AND
SNOW...

.A powerful storm system moving across Wyoming will push a very
strong cold front across the plains early this evening.
Temperatures will drop sharply, and result in winter precipitation
and possible hazardous travel conditions. Snow will first start
in the northern mountains and northern border area late this
evening, and then spread southward to the I-70 Corridor and rest
of the plains overnight. Precipitation may begin as light drizzle
and freezing drizzle on the plains, before switching over to all
snow by Thursday morning.

The Thursday morning commute looks snowy in most areas. Snow may
accumulate on road surfaces even in lower elevations, with
bridges and overpasses most susceptible to icing. Please allow
extra time to travel in the season's first snowfall.
