URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Goodland KS
740 AM MDT Fri Mar 24 2017

...SNOW AND BlOWING SNOW STILL POSSIBLE THIS MORNING...

.Widespread rainfall and isolated thunderstorms continue to
rotate into eastern Colorado. The rain snow line as of 6 AM MDT is
near Akron and Limon Colorado, but there are still indications
this will shift eastward into the western parts of Yuma, Kit
Carson, and Cheyenne counties. Any accumulations would be slushy
and light, but a greater concern is the potential for blowing snow
and reduced visibilities where the rain changes to snow. While
overall trends are indicating the chance for snow is weakening,
western parts of the counties should prepare for the possibility
of deteriorating travel conditions this morning.
