We knew there would be VERY STRONG WINDS with this system!

Let’s looks at just a few of the gusts around the region:

The Top Circle in Colorado is Limon Colorado, 50 mph sustained winds with 83 mph GUSTS..

Additional Gusts South of the surface LOW:

The system has reached is strongest point-

This system actually “BOMBED OUT” over Western KS…we rarely get to use that term! It means a Surface Low decreases 24mb in Pressure in a 24 hour period! It occurred between 4pm yesterday and 4pm today! We didn’t know if it would occur, but it did!! Again just something you typically see with a Nor’Easter or small compact late season blizzard across the Dakota’s.

THE PRESSURE IS ALREADY INCREASING ( which means the storm is weakening some )…Currently @ 975mb, 3mb higher than its strongest recorded pressure.

We have the surface Low over West Central KS- click on the sideways Triangle ( East of Scott City ) to see the counterclockwise motion around the surface Low:
