Wrapping Coverage Up For the Night

No tornado or severe thunderstorm watches are in effect. The earlier watches have expired.

Here is the AccuWeather Regional Radar from 10:12pm CDT:

A blizzard warning is in effect (orange) in Iowa with winter weather advisories out elsewhere in the Great Plains. Pink is a winter storm warning where roads are closed due to drifting.

I took the photo below at 10:30pm to demonstrate the snow and wind. The wind chill in northeast Wichita is 1° with north winds gusting to 39mph. Roads are in terrible shape in most of Kansas and Nebraska and the snow is worsening roads in Iowa and northwest Missouri.
I-70 still closed from Hays, Kansas, to Denver. All U.S. highways north, west and southwest of Dodge City, KS are closed.

This concludes our storm coverage for tonight.
