Blizzard Warning in effect from 3 PM this afternoon to 3 am CST Thursday

The National Weather Service in Twin Cities/Chanhassen has issued a Blizzard Warning which is in effect from 3 PM this afternoon to 3 am CST Thursday. The Winter Weather Advisory is no longer in effect. A Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect until 11 am CST this morning.

For the Blizzard Warning...

* timing: mid to late afternoon through late tonight.

* Visibility: 1/4 mile or less. Whiteout conditions are expected at times.

* Winds: northwest winds 25 to 35 mph with gusts as high as 50 mph.

* Impacts: widespread blowing snow and large drifts roadways. Due to the deep snow pack, some drifts may exceed 3 feet in open areas. This will make travel very difficult.

For the Wind Chill Advisory...

* wind chill values: 25 to 35 below zero this morning.

*** Precautionary/preparedness actions ***

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.

A Wind Chill Advisory means that very cold air and strong winds will combine to generate low wind chills. This will result in frostbite and lead to hypothermia if precautions are not taken. If you must venture outdoors, make sure you wear a hat and gloves.
