Blizzard warning ending - wind chill warning in place; conditions still hazardous

January 6, 2014

MARSHALL COUNTY -- Here is the latest weather information from the National Weather Service.

The blizzard warning put in place last evening will end at 7 a.m., but this is followed by a wind chill warning. Conditions are still hazardous on the roads, with reduced visibility.

"HAZARDOUS WEATHER:

* ACCUMULATING SNOW HAS ENDED BUT NORTHWEST WINDS OF 25 TO 35 MPH
WITH VISIBILITIES REDUCED TO NEAR ONE QUARTER MILE ARE STILL
POSSIBLE THROUGH 7AM EST. THIS WILL CAUSE SEVERE BLOWING AND
DRIFTING SNOW WITH BLIZZARD CONDITIONS IN RURAL AREAS.

* TEMPERATURES WILL DROP DRASTICALLY THROUGH THE DAY WITH
READINGS INTO THE TEENS BELOW ZERO. DEADLY WIND CHILLS BETWEEN
30 BELOW AND 45 BELOW ZERO CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGH TUESDAY.

IMPACTS...

* ROADS ARE IMPASSABLE IN MANY AREAS. SNOW EMERGENCIES HAVE BEEN DECLARED
IN MANY COUNTIES.

* VISIBILITIES WILL BE REDUCED TO ONE QUARTER MILE OR LESS IN
BLOWING SNOW.

* FROST BITE AND HYPOTHERMIA WILL OCCUR IN A MATTER OF MINUTES
WITH THESE EXPECTED WIND CHILLS. DEATH WILL ALSO OCCUR IF
PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A WIND CHILL WARNING MEANS THE COMBINATION OF VERY COLD AIR AND
STRONG WINDS WILL CREATE DANGEROUSLY LOW WIND CHILL VALUES. THIS
WILL RESULT IN FROST BITE AND LEAD TO HYPOTHERMIA OR DEATH IF
PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN.

A BLIZZARD WARNING MEANS SEVERE WINTER WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE
EXPECTED OR OCCURRING. FALLING AND BLOWING SNOW WITH STRONG WINDS
AND POOR VISIBILITIES ARE LIKELY. THIS WILL LEAD TO WHITEOUT
CONDITIONS...MAKING TRAVEL EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. DO NOT TRAVEL. IF
YOU MUST TRAVEL...HAVE A WINTER SURVIVAL KIT WITH YOU. IF YOU GET
STRANDED...STAY WITH YOUR VEHICLE."
