Early this afternoon a band of heavy snow continued across the

inches per hour have been reported under this band with reports of
up to 20 inches so far, with heavy snow continuing to fall. Whiteout
conditions also continue under the band of moderate to heavy snow.
OUTLOOK... The band of heavy snow will gradually lift northeast
through the rest of the afternoon and this evening. This will cause
blizzard conditions to either return or continue for this part of
the region. The snow and blizzard conditions should exit the region
during the late evening.
Widespread power outages have been reported with this storm and many
roads have been closed. Any traveling should be avoided unless
absolutely necessary during this event.
