URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DENVER/BOULDER CO
417 PM MDT SUN APR 13 2014

...SNOW CONTINUING INTO THIS EVENING...

.SNOW THAT HAS BEEN OCCURRING IN THE MOUNTAINS THIS AFTERNOON WILL
BE MOVING OUT ONTO THE PLAINS DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. TEMPERATURES HAVE BEEN COOLING THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AS
COLD AIR MOVES INTO THE STATE FROM WYOMING. AS THE SUN GOES DOWN
AND SNOW CONTINUES FALLING...ROADWAYS MAY BECOME MORE SLUSHY AND
SNOW-PACKED...RATHER THAN JUST WET. ON THE EASTERN PLAINS...GUSTY
NORTH WINDS WILL ALSO PRODUCE AREAS OF BLOWING SNOW WITH POOR
VISIBILITIES AT TIMES.

HEAVY SNOW FALLING IN SUMMIT COUNTY EARLIER THIS AFTERNOON FORCED
THE TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF I-70 BETWEEN VAIL PASS AND GEORGETOWN.
SNOW INTENSITIES HAVE DECREASED IN THE MOUNTAINS ALLOWING THE
HIGHWAY TO BE RE-OPENED. SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ON ROADWAYS WILL
CONTINUE TO BE HIGHLY DEPENDENT ON SNOW INTENSITY. EMBEDDED
SHOWERS WITH INTENSE SNOWFALL RATES UP TO AN INCH PER HOUR WILL
PRODUCE SLUSHY AND SNOW-PACKED CONDITIONS THROUGH THIS EVENING.
THE WET AND HEAVY SNOW MAY ALSO CAUSE SPOTTY POWER OUTAGES DUE TO
TREE BRANCHES DROOPING ONTO POWER LINES.
