Weekend Blizzard and Winter Storm Update

I hope the map isn't too difficult to read but I want to convey a lot of information. Click to enlarge. 

There will be a blizzard from the Oklahoma Panhandle through west Texas and eastern New Mexico. While most areas will have 8 to 20", it would not surprise me if some spots receive more than two feet. Blizzard or near-blizzard conditions will spread into southern Kansas. 

There is now a risk of freezing rain and glaze ice accumulation in the hatched areas. The darker and closer the hatching the higher the risk. 

The thin black lines indicate the spread of winter precipitation (snow or ice). By Sunday afternoon and Monday, the heavy snow will have spread into Iowa. 

I urge you to check your local AccuWeather Forecast tomorrow morning for specific updates for your location. Just enter your Zip Code at the top of the page at the orange link. 


Note: Scroll down for the weekend and early week flood risk and for the Saturday tornado risk area. There is also a risk of tornadoes on Sunday which I will cover tomorrow. 

Addition: NWS in ABQ says: "HISTORIC WINTER STORM TO IMPACT..WITH BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ACROSS EASTERN NEW MEXICO.."
