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.
