URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND JUNCTION CO  
228 AM MST FRI DEC 7 2018  
  
COZ018-019-022-023-071030-  
/O.CAN.KGJT.WW.Y.0036.000000T0000Z-181207T1600Z/  
NORTHWEST SAN JUAN MOUNTAINS-SOUTHWEST SAN JUAN MOUNTAINS-  
ANIMAS RIVER BASIN-SAN JUAN RIVER BASIN-  
228 AM MST FRI DEC 7 2018  
   
..WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS CANCELLED  
  
LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS AND AREAS OF FOG WILL PERSIST ACROSS SOUTHWEST  
COLORADO THROUGH THIS MORNING. HOWEVER, WIDESPREAD SIGNIFICANT   
SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE NO LONGER EXPECTED. THEREFORE, THE WINTER   
WEATHER ADVISORY HAS BEEN CANCELLED.   
  
MOTORISTS SHOULD STILL BE PREPARED FOR ICY CONDITIONS ALONG WITH   
VISIBILITY UNDER ONE MILE IN SPOTS DUE TO THE FOG AND LIGHT SNOW   
SHOWERS. CONDITIONS WILL SLOWLY IMPROVE AFTER 9 AM MST.  
  

Clearly, all they had to do was change the start time of the lower altitude advisory as most of the areas actually hit at least that 2″ minimum before some melting.  As far as the higher altitudes go, it was a blanket advisory therefore one of the areas mentioned will get that amount and others won’t, it is almost impossible to be wrong that way.  It is no different than when they issue an advisory after the snow has fallen, which we see a lot down here.  Don’t worry,  there are 2 to 4 storms to track before Christmas!
