A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from this evening through
late Saturday night.

* Expected conditions: heavy snow and blowing snow.

* Winds: southwest 10 to 20 mph with gusts to 30 mph Friday
night shifting northwest Saturday and increasing to 15 to 25
mph with gusts around 40 mph. Gusts in the high mountains
will exceed 60 mph.

* Visibility: occasionally less than one quarter mile with
white-out conditions.

* Snow accumulations: 4 to 8 inches... primarily above 5500
feet. Locally a foot or more can be expected in the high
mountains. Lesser amounts are expected below 5500 feet...
with generally 1 to 4 inches expected in the towns of
Jackpot... Owyhee and Montello.

* Timing: the greatest impacts will occur Saturday afternoon
through Saturday evening... when snow levels drop to the
valley floors... temperatures fall and winds reach maximum
strength.

* Impacts: roadways such as U.S. Route 93 and State Route 225
will become snow covered and hazardous... especially above
5500 feet. Blowing snow will make plowing very difficult
with some exposed sections rapidly becoming snow covered
after each plowing. In addition... hunters and other outdoor
enthusiasts in the high mountains will find travel to be
very difficult if not impossible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow accumulations that may impact travel. Continue to monitor
the latest forecasts.
