Winter Weather Advisory
Issued: 11:33 AM CST Feb. 24, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until midnight CST
tonight...

* short term trends... light snow is expected to persist into the
afternoon with a few periods of moderate snow. In addition, a
few periods of freezing drizzle will occur mainly east of
Interstate 35 through the afternoon. Strong north to northwest
winds will persist into the evening with some patchy blowing
snow.

* Additional snow accumulations... 1 to 2 inches.

* Winds/visibility... north winds at 20 to 30 mph are expected this
morning with gusts over 40 mph. Visibilities will below one mile
will become common and may drop below one half mile from time to
time by afternoon, mainly in rural areas.

* Impacts... roadways may initially develop minor icing and then
become snow covered later today. Blowing snow will reduce
visibility by afternoon and this evening creating hazardous
travel conditions.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory for freezing drizzle and then blowing
snow means that roads may become slick with visibilities then
limited due to strong winds blowing snow. Use caution when
traveling later today.
