Snow and wind likely to impact travel south of Minnesota

Snow and wind likely to impact travel south of Minnesota

Rock and Walworth counties in Wisconsin are under a Winter Storm Warning from 9 a.m. Sunday to 12 a.m. midnight Monday.

A winter storm warning is in place for the Chicago area, while blizzard conditions are possible near Kansas City, Missouri, on Sunday. That wind, combined with snow, will reduce visibility and make driving conditions unsafe.

The Blizzard Warning is in effect from 6 a.m.to 3 p.m. Sunday, according to information from the National Weather Service in Wichita (NWSW).

Snowfall totals could range in the warnings from 4"-8" and the advisories could see 2"-5".

In eastern Nebraska, part of Interstate 80 between Lincoln and Omaha was closed Sunday morning because of multiple accidents after snow blanketed that area.

That distance between Florida State and the programs that it considers to be peers and rivals was apparent against the Gators. Franks, who grew up just 20 miles south of Doak Campbell Stadium in Crawfordville, completed 16 of 26 passes for 254 yards.

In Illinois, state officials warned drivers that conditions are expected to deteriorate throughout the day, with heavy snow, high winds, and "much longer travel times" to be anticipated. Snow covered roads and severely restricted visibility is likely to create risky driving conditions Sunday morning.

Some areas could see near blizzard-like conditions by Sunday morning. The snowfall was expected to taper off ahead of Monday's commute. Rain was expected to change from snow from west to east, with temps falling into the low 30s during the day.

The potential exists for wintry weather Sunday that could also have an impact on holiday travel. This means that an inch or 2 of snow is possible along the southern half of Polk County with no snow in the northern half of the county.

In total, the storm could dump a foot or more of snow in some places.

The trend in the storm has been about 30 minutes to about an hour of sleet and then a quick transition to snow. Winds will be strong from the north-northeast at 20 to 25 miles per hour and wind gusts up near 40 miles per hour. Do not travel. If you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you.
