Blizzard Warning

Statement as of 10:07 AM CST on February 08, 2016

Expires 7:00 PM EST on February 08, 2016


... Blizzard Warning remains in effect until 6 PM CST this
evening...

* short term trends... whiteout conditions with zero visibility
will continue today... especially in rural open areas.

* Storm total snow accumulations... around an inch with narrow
bands of locally higher amounts possible.

* Winds/visibility... northwest winds 25 to 35 mph with gusts as
high as 50 mph.. visibilities around zero can be expected...
particularly in open areas and during heavier snow showers.

* Impacts... travel is not advised in many areas due to
considerable blowing snow and restricted visibilities.
Drifting snow will also cause slick icy roads and dangerous
travel... especially in areas that are 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.
