Winter Storm Warnings posted

Expect severely reduced visibility and white outs on Saturday into Saturday night as snow flies. No significant precipitation is forecasted for the rest of the week, though some light snow is possible on Wednesday. By the technical definition, the wind and snow will combine for blizzard conditions late Friday into Saturday morning across a portion of Northern Kansas. Whatever snow falls will be whipped around by winds gusting to 50 miles per hour, making travel hard. Surfaces such as highways, roads, walkways and parking lots may become icy and slippery. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.

If freezing rain continues unsafe roadway conditions and power outages are likely to develop.

The Winter Storm Warning for Allegan, Barry, Eaton and Ingham Counties to the north continues thru Sunday AM. Despite not being included, this region could still see freezing rain, with the best chances of this occurring Saturday night into Sunday morning when temperatures are closer to the 30-32° for lows.

Blizzard warnings are now up for western Minnesota. As colder air pours into the area Friday afternoon and Friday night the rain will turn to a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow across much of the area. Total snow and ice pellet amounts of 10 to 20 cm are possible before the precipitation tapers off later in the day.
