High Winds, Heavy Snow Create Blizzard Conditions In S

NWS Issues Blizzard Warning for Southwest Minnesota

According to the National Weather Service, blizzard conditions are expected to continue into Sunday afternoon and evening, with winds gusting up to 30 to 40 miles per hour.

Ever feel like its Groundhog Day and you keep reliving a forecast snow storm over and over again?

A Winter Storm Watch means there is potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel.

Snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches an hour and strong north winds Saturday created risky travel conditions throughout the western and central regions of Kansas, according to the National Weather Service.




Parts of the Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, Washington, metro areas were seeing a mix of rain and snow as of Sunday morning.

Plan on slippery roads becoming very hazardous or impassable Saturday afternoon and evening. But Monday looks like it will be sunny with highs in the mid-40s, though it will be windy again, and Tuesday looks to be the same without the wind. Chance of precipitation is 60%. "The amounts that we're looking at area anywhere between about an inch to three inches for total accumulation". Higher terrain areas could see 6 inches or more of total rain. North of 36 Highway could see 1-2 inches of snow and a light glazing of ice.

Regardless of area, strong winds will buffet the region, possibly up to 50 miles an hour in places, and produce blowing and drifting snow.
