On the northern edge, snow, ice, and/or a wintry mix is possible over the central Plains. A significant storm is expected to arrive late Friday through the weekend with rain, heavy mountain snow, and gusty winds for much of the West. Read More >

Overview

Two winter storms impacted the forecast area (CWA Map Here) in early February, 2022. The first storm brought widespread rain to the area ahead of a cold front on February 1st, 2021, then as the front dropped slowly southeast it changed to snow by the morning of February 2nd.  The transition occurred very slowly in the southeastern portions of our area, resulting in lower snow totals than initially expected. However, with cold air in place the second system that was centered just to our southeast brought another swatch of heavy snow to the central and southeastern forecast area through the late evening on February 3rd, 2022. North-northeast winds also strengthened to 15 to 25 mph or so, which led to blowing and drifting.  Roads became quickly snow covered, especially in open areas where blowing and drifting added to the poor travel conditions.
