Blizzard Warnings Are Posted

The Areas in Orange Are Under Blizzard Warnings
The blizzard warnings include Goodland on Interstate 70, Grand Island on Interstate 80 and Sioux City on I-29. Travel with be extremely dangerous in these areas and I highly recommend against it.

Pink areas are winter storm warnings. Purple represents winter weather advisories which is a lesser condition than a warning. The grayish green color in Minnesota, northern Wisconsin and the UP of Michigan are winter storm watches. Gray is dense fog advisories.

Here is the AccuWeather forecast of snow accumulations.
It will be extremely difficult to measure snow depths because of the extreme drifting of the snow due to the blizzard conditions.

The map immediately above is through Monday night. Here is a rough idea of the storm total snow forecast.

To the south, the gold (on the uppermost map above) is a high wind warning. Blowing dust may limit visibility on I-40 and I-25. The magenta color in Texas and Oklahoma is an area of extreme wildfire danger.
For additional, go to the AccuWeather (orange) link above. We are unaffected by the government shutdown.
