... Blizzard Warning now in effect until midnight CST tonight...
... Winter Storm Warning is cancelled...
The Blizzard Warning replaces the Winter Storm Warning.
* Timing... snow... heavy at times... will continue through this
evening. Blizzard conditions will also develop... especially
near the lake and in more open areas.
* Winds/visibility... northeast winds will increase to 20 to 30
mph with gusts to 40 mph this afternoon... with even stronger
winds near the lake. The combination of falling and blowing
snow will frequently reduce visibilities to near zero in white
out conditions late this afternoon and evening.
* Snow accumulations... 12 to 16 inches... with isolated totals up
to 18 inches possible.
* Main impact... snow covered roads will make travel difficult. By
afternoon... the combination of the snow and very strong winds
will make travel extraordinarily dangerous.
* Secondary impact... the combination of strong northeast winds and
snow covered power lines may lead to isolated power outages.
A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds
and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout
conditions... making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If
you must travel... have a winter survival kit with you. If you get
stranded... stay with your vehicle.
