  • Heavy snowfall could mar end-of-2018 travel as a winter storm moves across the country in coming days

The blizzard warning in western Kansas is in effect through noon Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. Both the Thursday evening and Friday morning commute could be hard, the weather service is reporting. The storm was expected to drop more than a foot of snow in the region before ending Friday.

Winter storm warnings were issued for much of Wisconsin along with parts of the Dakotas, Kansas and Nebraska.

There is also the possibility of the snow being mixed with rain, which could also turn into light freezing drizzle.

Sustained winds of 15-30 miles per hour with gusts ranging between 40 and 60 miles per hour are anticipated in part of the snowfall area.

Up to 11 inches (28 centimeters) of snow had fallen in the Moorhead-Alexandria area of western Minnesota by mid-afternoon Thursday, and it was still snowing, said meteorologist Tyler Hasenstein of the Twin Cities National Weather Service.

The weather service said an estimated 18 inches of snow had fallen by early Thursday afternoon near Finland on Minnesota's North Shore. This will begin with several inches overnight, and the majority of the accumulation will happen throughout Thursday.

But the rest of the match, Madrid lived up to their elite status and the talent gap was evident between the sides. Al Ain reached the final after proving to be the surprise of the short tournament.

The winter storm warning extends south of St. Cloud. "The snow will end over the Southern Plains by Thursday evening and over the Northern/Central Plains by Friday evening". Highs will only be in the low 30s today in Denver, with low 20s tomorrow.

Wind chills may drop to 25 to 30 below Friday night and early Saturday morning and return in the middle of next week.

A big storm is now entering the upper Midwest with plenty of moisture and seasonably warm air. As of right now, it looks like we'll start off the new year with some of the coldest temperatures of the winter season thus far.
