Statement as of 4:20 AM CST on February 23, 2017

Expires 1:00 AM EST on February 25, 2017


... Winter Storm Warning remains in effect from 6 PM this evening
to midnight CST Friday night...

* timing... rain, or a rain or snow mix on Thursday will change
to all snow Thursday evening. Snow, occasionally heavy, will
continue Thursday night and through the day on Friday, ending
on Friday evening.

* Snow accumulations... snow accumulations of 6 to 10 inches are
expected with locally higher amounts in isolated locations.

* Winds... northeast winds of 10 to 20 mph on Thursday evening
will become north, and then northwest during the day on Friday
increasing to 20 to 30 mph with gusts over 35 mph. This will
create considerable blowing and drifting with near blizzard
conditions possible at times on Friday and Friday evening.

* Impacts... the combination of the heavy snowfall, gusty winds
creating blowing and drifting as well as reducing visibilities
will make travel very hazardous to nearly impossible during
the storm. The winds combined with the wet and heavy nature of
the snow may also create the risk of sporadic power outages.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather
conditions are expected or occurring. Significant amounts of snow
are forecast that will make travel dangerous. Only travel in an
emergency. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food,
and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
