... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until 6 PM CST

* timing... snow will continue to expand across the region
... becoming moderate to heavy at times this afternoon and

snow covered.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow and blowing snow means
severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring.
Significant amounts of snow are forecast that will make travel
dangerous... and visibilities will be limited further due to
strong winds blowing snow around. Only travel in an emergency.
If you must travel... keep an extra flashlight... food... and water
in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
