  • Winter Storm Watch

By the technical definition, the wind and snow will combine for blizzard conditions late Friday into Saturday morning across a portion of Northern Kansas. Wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour could make travel very hard especially south and west of the metro. Significant reductions in visibility are possible. Any accumulating snow on top of this layer of ice will make travel even worse.

Although not included for now, those counties may be added later, depending on the latest forecast information.

WINTER STORM POSSIBLE FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY EVENING.A significant winter storm is expected Friday afternoon into Saturday evening and will likely include all precipitation types, strong winds, and blizzard conditions. More freezing rain Sunday.

Cooler air will be filtering in from the north, with temperatures falling to the 20s north of the Saginaw Bay for Saturday morning lows, with temperatures around the Tri-Cities and Thumb cooling off around 30.

Just north of the zone which is mostly freezing rain will be a zone of heavy, wet snow.

The National Weather Service said total ice accumulations of one quarter to one half of an inch are possible.

We can't rule out a mix of precipitation moving through the area Tuesday night before Wednesday becomes partly cloudy and windy with highs near 50.

Ahead of the snow, strong thunderstorms are possible over northeast Nebraska on Thursday night and in far Southeast Nebraska on Friday. Ice build-up may cause tree branches to break. The southern edge that dips down our way and into Iowa is for the potential of wind gusts reaching 45 to 50 miles per hour and creating blizzard conditions / white outs in this region on Saturday.
