Western's Weather Wrap: Storms & Blizzards

Snow is moving into northwest Kansas now, and storms are developing in southcentral Kansas. We will be monitoring both of these areas for severe weather and blizzard conditions, so stay tuned. Get the latest radar view here: http://www.ksn.com/weather/radar

The bulk of the severe weather is expected to miss our region to the east, but we will be watching our eastern counties closely, as all modes of severe weather will be possible this afternoon.

This is all due to a front passing through, so temperatures will be all over the place today, and winds will be strong everywhere.

Then the front completely passes through tonight, dropping our temperatures down to the 20s and 30s with snow and winds ongoing.

Snowfall totals won't be major for our area, but up to 3-6" will be possible for our far northwestern counties.

The biggest concern will be the blizzard conditions due to the strong winds - visibility will be near zero through Saturday, so stay home if you can.

Wind gusts up to 80 mph will be possible in western Kansas, which can cause damage and topple over high-profile vehicles, so use extra caution from now through Saturday night!

And, because of these winds, wind chills will be down into the teens and single digits by Saturday morning, so bundle up if you have to head out.

Stick with KSN through the weekend for all weather updates!
