... Blizzard Warning now in effect from midnight tonight to
midnight CST Friday night...

with the potential for thundersnow. Snowfall rates of up to one
inch per hour will be possible in the heaviest snow. Winds will
also increase overnight from the northeast becoming northwest by

one half mile or less for extended period of time with white-out
conditions expected from time to time, especially in rural
areas.

* 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.
