...BLIZZARD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT CST FRIDAY
* SHORT TERM TRENDS...Widespread thunderstorms are ongoing and
will persist through 3 am. Northwest portions of the area may
switch to snow at times with this precipitation while rain and
small hail occur over the south. Moderate to occasionally heavy
snow is expected to develop later tonight and persist on Friday.
* STORM TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS...4 to 8 inches.
* WINDS/VISIBILITY...Northerly winds at 20 to 30 mph with gusts
near 45 mph. Visibility will be reduced below one half mile for
long periods with occasional white-out conditions, especially
in rural areas.
* IMPACTS...Travel will become very dangerous to near impossible
as blowing and drifting snow reduce visibility early Friday
morning into Friday evening.
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.
