heavy snowfall and blowing snow. Snow accumulations of over
6 inches across the plains and high valleys or over 8 inches in
the mountains may occur. If you are planning to travel in the
watch area during the time of the watch... listen to the latest
weather forecast and consider traveling at another time or by
another Route. If you must travel in or through the watch area
during the time of the watch... take along a winter survival kit.
