...BLIZZARD WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 6 PM THIS EVENING TO 6 PM CST
The National Weather Service in Sioux Falls has issued a Blizzard
Warning, which is in effect from 6 PM this evening to 6 PM CST
Friday. The Blizzard Watch is no longer in effect.
* TIMING...A possible mix of rain and snow this afternoon will
change to all snow by early this evening. Snow will continue
heavy at times Thursday night and Friday morning, before
gradually tapering off Friday afternoon.
* ACCUMULATIONS...Storm total snow accumulations averaging 6 to 12
inches are likely, with the heaviest amounts expected south of
Highway 18 in northwest Iowa and extreme southeast South Dakota.
* WIND AND VISIBILITY...Winds will increase from the north around
25 to 35 mph tonight and Friday, with gusts to near 40 mph at
times. Visibility will be reduced to less than a quarter mile at
times, especially while snow is falling.
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.
