Blizzard Warning For NW kansas

KSAL StaffNovember 11, 2015

A winter storm system packing snow and high winds is expected to hit sections of northwest Kansas.

The National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for counties in northwest Kansas near the Colorado and Nebraska borders early Wednesday. The weather service says the warning remains in effect through Wednesday evening.

Forecasters are expecting strong winds with gusts up to 65 miles per hour to combine with blowing snow to reduce visibility in the area, making travel hazardous. Forecasts call for 2 inches to 6 inches of snow, with temperatures in the low to mid-30s.

Brian Warren, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Goodland, says the snow began in western Kansas early Wednesday and more is likely by late afternoon.

No road closures were reported early Wednesday.
