Watches & Warnings

Blizzard Warning
Issued: 4:14 AM CST Feb. 23, 2017 – National Weather Service

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

The National Weather Service in Sioux Falls has issued a Blizzard
Warning, which is in effect from 6 PM this evening to midnight
CST Friday night. The blizzard watch is no longer in effect.

* Timing... a possible mix of rain and snow this afternoon will
change to all snow through this evening. Snow will continue
heavy at times Thursday night and Friday, before gradually
tapering off Friday evening.

* Accumulations... storm total snow accumulations averaging 8 to 12
inches are likely, with some higher amounts possible.

* Wind and visibility... winds will increase from the north around
25 to 35 mph tonight, with gusts to near 45 mph at times late
tonight into Friday. Visibility is expected to be reduced to
less than a quarter of a 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.
