0248 PM CST Mon Jan 08 2024

Areas affected…Western Kansas into southern Nebraska

Concerning…Blizzard

Valid 082048Z – 090045Z

SUMMARY…Blizzard conditions continue into the evening.

DISCUSSION…Winds continue to strengthen across western Kansas with
sustained winds as high as 44 knots at KULS with numerous locations
reporting blizzard conditions. Winds may still strengthen further
over the next few hours as the northerly low-level jet continues to
strengthen/broaden on the western periphery of the 850mb low. Strong
cold air advection also continues with temperatures in the low 20s
now across northwest Kansas. Moderate to heavy snowfall within the
deformation band will slowly drift east through the evening as the
surface low advances eastward. Blizzard conditions will continue
across western Kansas and into southern Nebraska through this period
with only slow improvement from west to east.
