October Blizzard!


It’s not even halloween yet, but blizzard warnings have been posted for northwest Kansas and southern Nebraska.  Deepening low pressure over Kansas is expected to draw in colder air today, changing rain to snow with 3-4″ around Goodland, KS and upwards of a foot of snow near McCook, NE by Thursday evening.  As the storm intensifies the wind across this part of the plains is forecast to increase to 30-35 mph with gusts to 45 mph, creating whiteout conditions on I-70 and considerable blowing and drifting of snow.  As this storm moves east it will draw warmer air northward from the gulf coast region and bring a chance for rain here in the mid Atlantic region this weekend.
