As mentioned, heavy snow & strong wind will cause very difficult travel conditions Friday afternoon, evening, overnight, & most of Saturday morning & afternoon. Blizzard conditions (gusts to/over 35 mph & visibility under a quarter of a mile for at least three hours) will be likely west of I-35. Locally, we could see white-out conditions in places, especially in rural areas & the open stretches of roads. Travel and road conditions should start to improve by Saturday afternoon and evening. Watch out for patchy blowing snow though lingering into and through Saturday night. If you have to be out on the roads at anytime during this storm, please be very careful, and allow extra time to get to and from your destination(s). Don't forget to put the winter survival kit in your vehicle, and let someone know where you are going and when you are expected to arrive. Also, make sure your cell phone is fully charged & your gas tank is topped off before you head out on the roads! Don't forget to check the latest road conditions before you head out the door!
