especially along and north of Interstate 80. And then 3 to 9
inches of snowfall could occur on Saturday. Winds could gust 30
to 50 mph Saturday afternoon and evening. This will create

Saturday, and then a blizzard warning will go into effect until
early Sunday morning. Please complete storm preparations now.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

There will be a few additional chances of light snow next week,
