  • Big blizzard headed this way: up to 55 mph winds, 11 inches or more of snow

We've got a very powerful spring storm will bring heavy snow, blizzard conditions, ice, and strong winds and from the Plains eastward into the Great Lakes.

"The falling snow, combined with brisk winds, may lead to significantly reduced visibility and slick roads". There could be a few areas south of the city that could be a little higher than an inch.

The best chance for snow accumulation will be in northwest Kansas, north of Interstate 70, where three to six inches of snow could fall.

The huge storm, packing enough energy to cause widespread disruption, isn't unprecedented for April, said Jake Beitlich, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The Blizzard Warning runs to 1 a.m. Sunday.

The snow will move out Saturday night leaving Sunday quieter but cool with highs in the mid 30s. Winds could gust up to 50 miles per hour. One inch of additional accumulation is possible.

Damage to power lines may occur. Golf ball-sized hail fell Friday morning in parts of southwestern Wisconsin, covering the ground like snow in Richland Center and Gays Mills. And up to 14 inches (36 centimeters) of snow could amount in some Nebraska spots.

Strong to severe thunderstorms began developing in eastern areas of Kansas, and tornado watches were issued for the northeast and southeast corners of the state.
