Watches & Warnings

Blizzard Warning
Issued: 8:55 PM MST Feb. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Blizzard Warning remains in effect until 11 am MST Friday...

* timing... snow will rapidly increase across the area late this
evening... becoming heavy at times overnight and continuing
through Thursday. Light to moderate snow will continue into
Friday morning. The heaviest snowfall and strongest wind should
occur between the predawn hours Thursday and Thursday evening.

* Snowfall... 8 to 15 inches with the heavier amounts along and
north of Interstate 80.

* Winds/visibility... northwest to north wind increasing
overnight to 30 to 40 mph with gusts 50 to 60 mph causing
blizzard conditions and zero visibility from early Thursday

Thursday night and Friday.

* Main impact... travel may become nearly impossible due to the
heavy snow... very strong wind and near zero visibility.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds
and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout
conditions... making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If
you must travel... have a winter survival kit with you. If you get
stranded... stay with your vehicle.
