Blizzard Warning


URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
401 PM CST Fri Feb 22 2019

...SIGNIFICANT WINTER IMPACTS EXPECTED TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY...

.A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect overnight through Sunday
morning for portions of west central Wisconsin through
southeastern Minnesota, specifically along and east of a line from
Blue Earth to Faribault in Minnesota, continuing to River Falls
and Bloomer in Wisconsin. Snowfall accumulations of up to around 2
inches along with up to a tenth of an inch of ice accretion can be
expected through Saturday morning.

A stronger system is expected for Saturday night through Sunday
when accumulating snow plus blowing snow will impact travel,
including blizzard conditions for much of southern and western
Minnesota.

A Blizzard Warning is in effect Saturday evening through Sunday
afternoon south of a line from Appleton to Litchfield to
Hastings, and west of the Interstate 35 corridor. This includes
southern portions of the Twin Cities metro, away from more
suburban areas. Within the Blizzard Warning, snow accumulations
will range from 2 to 4 inches near the South Dakota border to 6 to
8 inches along Interstate 35. The snow is expected from late
Saturday afternoon through the early morning hours Sunday,
followed by strong winds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts to near 50 mph
for most of the day Sunday. This could lead to whiteout
conditions, making travel very difficult or impossible in the open
areas of western, central, and southern Minnesota.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect Saturday evening through
Sunday afternoon east of line from from Cumberland and New
Richmond in Wisconsin, continuing to Cannon Falls in Minnesota.
Within the Winter Storm Warning, snow accumulations of 6 to 9
inches can be expected with localized higher amounts possible. The
snow is expected Saturday evening through Sunday morning, followed
by strong winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 40 mph for most of
the day Sunday. This may produce areas of blowing and drifting
snow, making travel difficult for portions of far southeastern
Minnesota into west central Wisconsin.

254 PM MST Fri Feb 22 2019

...Blizzard conditions expected on Saturday...

.A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued tonight for the
expected dense freezing fog that could produce up to one tenth of
an inch of ice accumulation. Additionally, light snow of up to
two inches over eastern Colorado will be starting to spread
eastward across far southwest Nebraska and western Kansas.
A Blizzard Warning has been issued for Saturday into Saturday
evening for the snowfall accumulations that could range from 4 to
6 inches across the area. Strong sustained winds of 40 to 45 mph
with gusts approaching 60 mph are expected mainly over west
central Kansas on Saturday. Those strong winds will likely combine
with the fresh snow cover to produced widespread severe
reductions in visibilities of 1/4 mile or less in Blowing Snow.
Areas of Blowing Snow will continue into Saturday evening even
after the snow quits falling across the region by late Saturday
afternoon.

...Icy Tonight Into Saturday, Blizzard Conditions Saturday
Evening Into Sunday...

.Wintry precipitation will spread across Iowa tonight bringing
areas of freezing drizzle and freezing rain to much of Iowa
through Saturday morning. Freezing drizzle and freezing rain will
mix with some light snow across portions of west central
northwest Iowa through the day Saturday. Heavy snow and blizzard
conditions are expected to develop across west central and
northern Iowa Saturday evening through Sunday with wintry mixed
precipitation and patchy blowing snow further south and east.
There is still some uncertainty in snow amounts with a tight
gradient on the north and south sides of a heavier band of snow,
especially in the area along a rain/snow mix line across portions
of central Iowa including the Des Moines metro area. A small
shift in the track of the system will change the area of the
heaviest snow axis which could lead to an expansion of the area
with blizzard conditions as the track becomes more defined into
Saturday. As colder air moves into Iowa Saturday evening,
precipitation will change over to all snow, potentially heavy at
times. Wet areas may quickly freeze Saturday evening creating icy
travel conditions. Strong and gusty northwest to west winds to
increase across the state Saturday night through Sunday causing
areas of blowing snow and blizzard conditions especially in rural
areas.
