Yuma County Hazardous Weather Outlook

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


A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Kit Carson and Yuma
counties in Colorado, Dundy, Hitchcock, and Red Willow counties in
Nebraska, and Cheyenne, Rawlins, Decatur, Norton, Sherman, Thomas,
Sheridan, Graham, and Gove counties in Kansas. The advisory will be
in effect from 8 PM MST this evening through 5 PM MST Tuesday evening.

Hazardous weather is not expected until a few hours before sunrise as
another weather disturbance approaches the area from the north. Its
possible for a few tenths of an inch of snow to fall in the advisory
area. The combination of any snowfall and northwest winds gusting in
the 25 to 35 mph range could produce some reduced visibilities and
slick spots on area roadways.


Strong north winds will continue on Tuesday with gusts approaching
50 mph. Light snow will move through the area from the north with
the next surge of cold air. Although total snowfall accumulations are
currently expected to be in the one to two inch range north of the
interstate with a half inch or less to the south, the combination of
snow and strong north winds will produce some blowing snow and
sharply reduced visibilities. Roads may be slippery in spots.


Spotter activation will not be needed. may be required. We would
appreciate snowfall reports via telephone and social media.
