Blizzard Conditions In KELOLAND

January 15, 2014, 6:24 PM by Scot Mundt

Blizzard Conditions In KELOLAND

We had a break from the strong winds on Wednesday, but they will be back in full force on Thursday.

Low pressure will dive out of Canada and into Minnesota late tonight and into Thursday morning. Strong winds will sweep in right behind it. Wind speeds will range between twenty-five and fifty miles per hour.

It's interesting to know, at about 5,000 feet above the surface, the winds will range from seventy to close to ninety miles per hour. I don't think we'll be able to transition those speeds to the surface, but gusts of more than sixty miles per hour are a great possibility. 

Because of the strong winds, blizzard warnings are in effect for northeast KELOLAND late tonight and through Thursday. The winds will be able to pick up any loose snow and light new snow to create visibilities near or at zero at times, which will create hazardous driving conditions. While new snow amounts will stay less than an inch, blizzard conditions are likely.

The definition of a blizzard is to have wind speeds of thirty-five miles per hour and greater along with considerable falling or blowing snow causing visibilities to be reduced to less than a quarter mile. All of which we will have in northeast KELOLAND on Thursday.
