Winter Storm Warnings will go into effect Tuesday night for the Panhandle, west-central and north-central portions of the state for heavy snow and blowing snow along with dangerous wind chills up to 40 below along with winter storm watches just south of the area ….Tri-Cities are not included.

The surface portion of the storm will track from the Kanas/Oklahoma border to northwest Missouri by Wednesday evening. The best dynamics for heavy snow will be in South Dakota and northern Nebraska with lighter amounts going south. In general, there could be 6 inches to a foot in northern counties with an inch or two south of the Interstate. We will reset the numbers by tomorrow as the storm approaches and the amounts become more substantial. Winds will be gusty causing deep snow with bitter cold following the storm, which will exit the state by Thursday afternoon.
