Blizzard Warning 16 Jan 14

There’s a blizzard warning in effect until midnight tonight (Thursday) for the area.

The day starts with mild temperatures, but The National Weather Service says conditions will deteriorate this morning and last through tonight with winds from the northwest around 40 miles an hour and gusting to 55 miles an hour.  That will cause near zero visibility, especially in open areas.

We’ll have an inch or less of snow, but because of the wind, officials say travel will be extremely dangerous and wind chills will be near 30 below zero by this evening.
