Yuma County Hazardous Weather Outlook

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


A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect for the entire Tri-State area
until 9 AM MDT, 10 AM CDT this morning.


A brief but potent winter storm will impact portions of the Tri-
State area Thursday afternoon into Thursday night. The majority of
precipitation with this system is anticipated to fall in northeast
Colorado and southwest Nebraska, or along and north of a line from
Burlington to Atwood to McCook. Winds will shift to the North at 30
to 40 mph with gusts up to 55 mph Thursday afternoon, as a low
pressure system tracks eastward into central Kansas. Rain will
transition to snow during the late afternoon, shortly after winds
shift to the North. Winds will be strongest during the late afternoon
and early evening. Considerable uncertainty persists with regard to
precipitation amounts. Significant snow accumulation and near
blizzard conditions will be possible along and north of Highway 34.
Winds will gradually weaken late Thursday evening into Thursday
night. Wind chill readings ranging from 0 to 10 degrees are expected
Friday morning.

Residents and travelers are encouraged to pay close attention to the
forecast during the next 24 to 36 hours, as this system develops.


Spotter activation is not anticipated at this time.
