...BLIZZARD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
LATE SUNDAY NIGHT...

* TIMING...BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE FROM SUNDAY
  AFTERNOON THROUGH LATE SUNDAY NIGHT DUE TO A COMBINATION OF
  STRONG WINDS AND FALLING SNOW.

* WINDS / VISIBILITIES...WINDS GUSTING AS HIGH AS 50 MPH COULD
  CAUSE WHITEOUT CONDITIONS IN BLOWING SNOW. SIGNIFICANT
  DRIFTING OF THE SNOW THAT FELL EARLIER IN THE WEEK IS LIKELY.

* SNOW ACCUMULATIONS...TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF UP TO 1 INCH
  ARE POSSIBLE...BUT HIGHER AMOUNTS MAY BE POSSIBLE IN STRONGER
  SNOW SHOWERS.

* IMPACTS...TRAVEL COULD BECOME VERY DIFFICULT AT TIMES DUE TO
  REDUCED VISIBILITY AND BLOWING SNOW OVER ROADWAYS. RURAL AND
  OPEN AREAS WILL HAVE THE HIGHEST IMPACT.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A BLIZZARD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FALLING AND/OR
BLOWING SNOW WITH STRONG WINDS AND EXTREMELY POOR VISIBILITIES.
THIS CAN LEAD TO WHITEOUT CONDITIONS AND MAKE TRAVEL VERY
DANGEROUS.
