Seward County could wind up with as much as 4 inches of snow Friday night, according to a weather forecast released by Seward County Emergency Management Director Greg Standard.
“Most likely, we will receive less than 2 inches,” Standard noted. “None the less, winds in the 20 to 35 mph range may reduce visibility at times and could produce slick roads Friday night and Saturday morning.
“Presently, the deepest snow is expected to fall to the south and east of Seward County, so travel in those areas may be more difficult,” he continued. “Wind chill may be significant, prepare for any outdoor activities or travel.”
