Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 1:42 PM MST Feb. 20, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Quick-hitting high impact snow and blowing snow possible
Saturday...

A strong winter storm centered near Las Vegas, Nevada at sunrise
Friday is expected to track to northeast New Mexico at sunrise
Saturday, and then track through Kansas on Saturday. Model
solutions consistently show a track favorable for accumulating
snow and strong winds across most of SW Kansas on Saturday.

Precipitation is expected to begin as widespread rain Friday
night. Rain will change to snow from west to east Saturday
morning, with several hours of intense snowfall rates likely
during the daylight hours Saturday. This snow will be accompanied
by northwest winds gusting 50 to 60 mph. As such, blizzard
conditions are expected. Wet snow sticking to trees and power
lines may introduce additional hazards with possible power
outages. Travel may become dangerous to impossible for several
hours Saturday, with visibility near zero in heavy snow and
blowing and drifting snow. Currently, areas along a line from near
Garden City to near Hays appear most likely to receive these
impacts Saturday. Any shift in storm track will change where these
impacts will occur.

Those planning travel across the plains on Saturday are urged to
monitor forecast updates over the coming days. Winter storm or
blizzard watches are expected to be necessary for Saturday.
