Snow Squall
What is a Snow Squall Warning?
Many of you received a "Snow Squall Warning" alert on your phones last night as two areas of intense, heavy snow and wind developed over extreme northern Colorado and across the southern Denver metro area during Thursday evening's commute. A snow squall is just that: a quick but intense burst of heavy snow, often accompanied by gusty winds, and typically lasting less than three hours from start to finish. A Snow Squall Warning is similar to a Severe Thunderstorm Warning or Tornado Warning issue
