Blizzard Could Develop Near Denver, Travel Problems Possible Friday

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for several counties, including Nance, Polk, Merrick, and Hall Counties. Strong winds may make travel hard and risky.

"Total snow accumulations of 7 inches to 11 inches, with localized amounts up to 18 inches, are expected", according to the bulletin posted just before noon on Thursday.

The most extreme conditions on Friday are expected near the borders of Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas as well central Texas and the western portions of Illinois, Tennessee and Mississippi.

From the Associated Press: Forecasters say the blizzard warnings extending from southwest Nebraska into northwest Iowa and beyond include heavy snow and gusting winds that will make travel perilous.

"Accumulating snow is possible Saturday night into Sunday". There could be a few areas south of the city that could be a little higher than an inch. Big Sandy schools will be closing at 12:15 p.m. Calhan RJ1 will close at 1 p.m., as will Frontier Charter Academy. One inch of additional accumulation is possible.

In Denver we are expecting snow showers until around midnight tonight.

Damage to power lines may occur.

Additional severe weather risk is expected from early Friday afternoon through early evening across the eastern third of Kansas with the possibility of severe thunderstorms, 1-2 inch hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes. Winds, likely to reach speeds between 50 and 80 miles per hour, could bring white out conditions to the area.
