...Potentially hazardous travel conditions this afternoon...
Winds will quickly increase from the north late this morning and this afternoon with occasional gusts to 40 mph. This will lead to some areas of blowing snow...particularly near the I-70 corridor where one to two inches of snow have already fallen. This may make it difficult to maintain clear roadways in these locations.
In addition...rapidly falling temperatures into the middle 20s this afternoon will cause any slush and water to freeze especially on any untreated roadways as well as bridges and overpasses. This may result in very hazardous and icy conditions in spots.
Motorists should use caution if traveling this afternoon and be prepared for quickly deteriorating travel conditions.
