Winter Storm Watch
Issued: 11:40 AM CST Jan. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Tuesday afternoon
through Wednesday afternoon...

* timing trends... snow will develop Tuesday afternoon and
continue throughout much of Tuesday evening. The exact
location of the heaviest snow band is still in question.

* Storm total snow accumulations... 4 to 7 inches with locally
higher amounts possible. The snow is also expected to be wet
and heavy.

* Winds/visibility... blustery northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph
with higher gusts will develop late Tuesday night and persist
through the day Wednesday. Substantial visibility restrictions
due to blowing and drifting snow are highly likely.

* Impacts... wet snow covered roads will create slick roads. The
snow and blowing snow will create visibility restrictions and
the combination of these elements will lead to hazardous
travel conditions. This system will likely impact both the
Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning commutes across the
watch area.
