With the record warm February temperatures these past few days, it’s hard to believe that parts of the Midwest will be pulling the shovels and the boots out again. A strong winter storm system is set to bring heavy snow and gusty winds from Wyoming to Minnesota. This storm is associated with a cold front moving east and is expected to strengthen as it moves into the High Plains. In the path of the storm, there will be snow totals ranging from 10- 16 inches.
Despite the warm temperatures and the ground being warm, snow accumulation is still expected to occur. This is a dangerous storm that will make driving very unsafe. Winter storm watches and blizzard watches have been issued ahead of this to prepare people for the potential hazardous road conditions. With heavy snow expected, be prepared with the essentials at home and in your car! Winter is back for now!
