Blizzard Watch

Statement as of 4:13 AM CST on February 06, 2016

Expires 1:00 PM EST on February 08, 2016


... Blizzard watch now in effect from Sunday afternoon through
Monday morning...

* timing... blizzard conditions are possible from Sunday afternoon
into Monday morning... due to a combination of strong winds and
falling snow. The strongest winds are currently expected to
impact the area Sunday evening.

* Winds / visibilities... winds gusting as high as 50 mph could
cause whiteout conditions in blowing snow. Significant
drifting of the snow that fell earlier in the week is likely.

* Snow accumulations... total snow accumulations of up to 1 inch
are possible... but higher amounts may be possible in stronger
snow showers.

* Impacts... travel could become very difficult at times due to
reduced visibility and blowing snow over roadways. Rural and
open areas will see the highest impact.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A blizzard watch means there is a potential for falling and/or
blowing snow with strong winds and extremely poor visibilities.
This can lead to whiteout conditions and make travel very
dangerous.

reduced to less than one quarter mile. If driving... slow down...
