...BLIZZARD WARNING CONTINUES OVERNIGHT FOR SNOWFALL RATES OF 1
TO 2 INCHES PER HOUR ALONG WITH WIND GUSTS OF 30 TO 40 MPH...
.Heavy snow will continue for a few more hours tonight, and then
start to taper off toward morning. The main concern with this
storm is the intense snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour,
along with strong northerly winds. This will lead to significant
blowing and drifting snow, with whiteout conditions at times.
A Blizzard Warning remains in effect overnight for a large area
from west central and southwest Minnesota to west central
Wisconsin. A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect north and
south of the Blizzard Warning.
...BLIZZARD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 AM CDT SATURDAY...
* WHAT...Blizzard conditions expected with total snow
accumulations of 5 to 10 inches, with locally heavier amounts
possible. Winds gusting as high as 35 mph.
* WHERE...Portions of south central and southeast Minnesota and
west central Wisconsin.
* WHEN...Now through 7 AM CDT Saturday.
* IMPACTS...Travel will be very difficult. Widespread blowing snow
could significantly reduce visibility.
Travel should be restricted to emergencies only. If you must
travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded,
stay with your vehicle.
