New Winter Storm Forecast in the Central U.S.

Here are the current advisories:
  • Colbat blue = winter storm watch. 
  • Purple = winter weather advisory
  • Pink = winter storm warning
  • Brown = high wind
  • Green = various flood warnings/advisories 
I'm concerned the freezing rain forecast in the Great Plains is not getting enough attention. 
No significant freezing rain is forecast to occur before 6pm CST.

The above map is the most likely scenario. In the areas of middle and darker green shading, roads will become extremely hazardous and there could be a power failure or two. I would urge you not to travel once the freezing rain begins.

Farther north, the precipitation type will be snow. Pinks are areas where more than six inches is forecast to fall.
