... Blizzard Warning in effect until 11 PM MST Monday...
... Winter Storm Warning is cancelled...

The National Weather Service in Pueblo has issued a Blizzard
Warning... which is in effect until 11 PM MST Monday. The Winter
Storm Warning has been cancelled.

* 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 Monday.

* Total snow accumulation... 2 to 4 feet.

* Snow accumulation... 3 to 4 feet with significant drifting.

* Wind... west to southwest 30 to 40 and gusting to over 55 mph at
times through Monday.

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

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Winter storms may have strong winds and reduced visibility due to
heavy snowfall and blowing snow. Snow accumulations of over
8 inches in the mountains may occur. If you are planning to
travel in the watch area during the time of the watch... listen to
the latest weather forecast and consider traveling at another
time or by another Route. If you must travel in or through the
watch area during the time of the watch... take along a winter
survival kit.

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.
