Watches & Warnings

Blizzard Warning
Issued: 4:31 AM CST Feb. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Blizzard Warning in effect from 6 am Friday to midnight CST
Friday night...

The National Weather Service in Des Moines has issued a Blizzard
Warning, which is in effect from 6 am Friday to midnight CST
Friday night. The Winter Storm Watch is no longer in effect.

* Timing... rain will transition to snow Thursday night into Friday
morning with winds increasing through the day on Friday. The
precipitation and wind are expected to persist into early Saturday
morning.

* Storm total snow accumulations... 6 to 12 inches.

* Winds/visibility... winds becoming north to northwesterly at 20
to 30 mph with gusts over 40 mph. Visibility will be reduced
to one half mile or less during periods of heavier snow and
wind.

* Impacts... travel will become very dangerous to near impossible
as blowing and drifting snow reduce visibility Friday into early
Saturday 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.
