Winter Storm Warning
Statement as of 8:59 PM CST on March 04, 2015

... Winter Storm Warning now in effect until noon CST Thursday...

* timing... Arctic air will continue to pour into the area tonight.
Freezing rain and sleet should begin around 10 PM and continue
into Thursday morning. Temperatures should rise above freezing
after noon Thursday.

* Main impact... freezing rain and sleet causing icing of 1/10 inch
and locally up to a quarter inch. This will make for icy roads
and hazardous driving conditions. Iced tree branches may break
in the strong gusty winds accompanying the storm system. Power
lines may become weighed down and fail from the higher ice
accumulations.

* Other impacts... sidewalks... decks... and other surfaces may be
difficult to walk on.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning means accumulations of sleet or freezing
rain are expected or occurring. This will cause considerable
travel problems and may pose a threat to life and property.

* timing... 9 PM Wednesday night through noon Thursday

* winds... sustained at 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph.

* Impacts... typical issues with trash cans and other loose items
