Watches & Warnings

Blizzard Warning
Issued: 10:59 AM CST Feb. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Blizzard Warning remains in effect from 6 PM this evening to
6 PM CST Friday...

* timing... a possible mix of rain and snow this afternoon will
change to all snow by early this evening. Snow will continue
heavy at times Thursday night and before gradually tapering off
Friday morning into the afternoon.

* Accumulations... storm total snow accumulations averaging 5 to
11 inches are likely, with the heaviest amounts expected south
of Highway 18 in northwest Iowa and extreme southeast South
Dakota.

* Wind and visibility... winds will increase from the north
around 25 to 35 mph tonight and Friday, with gusts to near 40
mph at times. Visibility will be reduced to less than a
quarter mile at times, especially while snow is falling.

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.
