How Much Snow/Ice
Additional Snow Forecast
The heaviest snow will accumulate in western and central Kansas and southern Nebraska, where storm totals of one foot or more are possible.
Widespread 6-12" snow totals are expected in Iowa, northern Missouri, and much of the rest of Nebraska, outside the Panhandle.
Snowfall amounts generally less than 6" are expected in the Upper Mississippi Valley and Great Lakes.
How Much Ice/Sleet
Ice/sleet accumulations of one quarter to one half inch are possible from northeast Oklahoma into northern Arkansas, southern Missouri and southern Illinois. These accumulations will generally ice most roads, cause tree limbs to sag or break, and trigger power outages.
Sleet/ice accumulations of one quarter inch or less are expected from southeast Kansas and northern Oklahoma into the Ohio Valley and Appalachians. These accumulations will ice bridges and overpasses, coat windshields, and may accumulate lightly in trees.
By Thursday, stretches of Interstate 80 in Nebraska and Interstate 70 in northern Kansas may close, due to heavy snow, as well as blowing/drifting snow.
On the southern end of the storm, severe thunderstorms will threaten parts of the South.
