Blizzard Warning

Statement as of 3:53 PM CST on February 07, 2016

Expires 7:00 PM EST on February 08, 2016


... Blizzard Warning remains in effect from 7 PM this evening to
6 PM CST Monday...

* timing... winds should gradually increase... and visibilities
deteriorate... through the evening hours with the most severe
conditions expected to occur overnight into Monday morning.

* Storm total snow accumulations... generally around an inch or
less... but narrow bands of locally higher amounts are possible.

* Winds/visibility... northwest wind 25 to 35 mph with occasional
gusts to near 45 mph. Visibilities may drop to one quarter mile
or less at times... particularly during heavier snow showers.

* Impacts... considerable blowing snow and restricted visibilities will
cause dangerous travel in some areas... especially in those open
or unprotected. Conditions may change rapidly... even across
individual counties. Winds of this magnitude may also affect
driving of low profile vehicles and loose light weight objects.

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.
