Yuma County Hazardous Weather Outlook

This hazardous weather outlook is for extreme southwest Nebraska…
northwest Kansas and east central Colorado.


Strong northwest winds gusting to near 50 mph will produce wind
chill values between 10 and 20 degrees. There may also be localized
light freezing rain or drizzle as temperatures drop below freezing
and the light rain eventually changes over to light snow. Very little
in the way of accumulating precipitation is expected as this system
moves through.

During the afternoon a band of moderate to heavy snow will move east
into the Tri-State Area. As the band moves in visibilities may fall
to as low as a quarter mile. Confidence is highest these low
visibilities will occur over Yuma and Kit Carson Counties. The
threat for low visibilities should decline as the band moves east of
the Colorado border. Little to no snow accumulation is expected. The
melted snow may turn to ice on bridges and overpasses.

A Freeze Warning has been issued for the entire area in anticipation
of temperatures in the teens and 20s leading to a hard freeze
tonight. Record or near record low temperatures are possible
overnight. Wind chills of -5 to 15 degrees are possible across the
area with winds gusting between 25 and 35 mph.


A Freeze Warning will be in effect through Friday morning.


Spotter activation may be required.
