The Storm at 6pm

Here is the AccuWeather regional radar at 6pm:
A line thunderstorms is moving east across eastern Texas. Strong winds are possible with a few of the strong thunderstorms. The purple is the transition zone from rain (east) to snow (shades of light blue, west). Very heavy rains are occurring over eastern Kansas.

The blizzard is in full force from northeast New Mexico to central Kansas. Orange = blizzard warning on the map below.

Pink = winter storm warning. Blue = winter weather advisory meaning inconvenient, but not dangerous, winter weather.

Winds are gusting to 50 mph from the north in southeast Colorado, far southwest Kansas, the western Oklahoma Panhandle, and northeast New Mexico.

The map below is the expected snow accumulation from 3pm this afternoon until 5pm Tuesday morning. Note: This does not include snow that fell prior to 3pm. There are very heavy amounts of around a foot between Salina and WaKeeney, KS on Interstate 70.

This will be the last storm update this evening.
