...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.
