• Daily Leader staff report

 

The National Weather Service out of Dodge City issued a blizzard watch throughout Southwest Kansas at 4:06 this morning. The watch has been issued for Wednesday night and Christmas Eve day.

A strong winter storm will develop over the central plains, which may create blizzard conditions and significantly impact  travel across Southwest Kansas on Christmas Eve, the report noted.

Rain and snow are expected to begin across Southwest Kansas on Wednesday and then transition to snow Wednesday night and continue through Christmas Eve day.

In addition to the falling snow, very strong winds in excess of 35 mph with gusts up to 50 mph are possible with this storm. This may create significant blowing and drifting snow with widespread blizzard conditions.

It’s too early to predict exactly how much snow will fall, but significant accumulations are possible.
