Blizzard Warning
Statement as of 11:02 PM MST on March 02, 2015

... Blizzard Warning remains in effect until 5 PM MST Tuesday...

* location... the eastern San Juan Mountains above 10000 feet.

* Cause and timing... a moist... Pacific jet stream will bring
periods of heavy snow and strong winds to the Continental
Divide through Tuesday.

* Total snow accumulation... 3 to 4 feet with significant
drifting. Very intense snowfall rates will be possible late
this evening. Thunder snow squalls are possible.

* Wind... west to southwest 25 to 40 mph with gusts to 55 mph at
times tonight.

* Impact... travel will be very hazardous... if not impossible...
due to heavy... blowing and drifting snow... near zero
visibilities and icy... snow covered roads. Road closures will
be possible. Avalanche danger will be extreme.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Life threatening winter weather conditions are expected.
Sustained wind speeds or frequent gusts over 35 mph and
visibility reduced to below 1/4 mile by falling and blowing snow
are expected.

Avoid traveling in the warning area. If you are planning to
travel in the warning area during the time of the warning...
listen to the latest weather forecast and consider traveling at
another time or by another Route. If you must travel in the
warning area during the time of the warning... take along a winter
survival kit. If you become stranded in a rural area... stay with
your vehicle until help arrives. In similar conditions during
past blizzards... people have died of exposure while trying to
walk to shelter. To keep warm in your vehicle... run your engine
10 minutes each hour... and make sure the exhaust pipe is clear of
snow to avoid Carbon monoxide poisoning.
