**********************AVALANCHE WARNING**************************
COLORADO AVALANCHE INFORMATION CENTER RELAYED BY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DENVER/BOULDER CO 819 PM MST WED MAR 06 2019

THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE IS TRANSMITTED AT THE REQUEST OF THE COLORADO AVALANCHE INFORMATION CENTER.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center's North San Juan zone has
been added to the ongoing Avalanche Warning.

* TIMING...Beginning 8:00 PM MST on Wednesday March 6. Expires at
8:00 AM MST Friday March 8.

* AFFECTED AREA...The Colorado Avalanche Information Center's North San Juan zone Including the San Juan Mountains, San Miguel
Mountains, Rico Mountains, Uncompahgre Plateau and Dallas Divide.

* AVALANCHE DANGER...Very dangerous avalanche conditions exist. The avalanche danger is HIGH (Level 4). Very large natural avalanches
are likely. We may see avalanches of historic size. These avalanches will be very destructive and may run to the valley bottoms.

* REASON...Rain, warm temperatures, and strong winds have raised the
avalanche danger to HIGH (Level 4) at multiple elevation bands. Avalanches will release naturally, and can run from high
elevations to the valley floors.

Instructions:

* PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...Travel in or below avalanche terrain is not recommended. Give avalanche paths a wide berth. Avalanches may run further into the valleys than you might think.
