'Blockbuster Blizzard' Set to Wallop Central US

Potential Winter Storm For SE Wyoming Wednesday

Blizzard conditions with two feet of snow and 70 miles per hour winds are expected in South Dakota... but that's just part of this large storm. The record temperature for the date is 81°F, set in 1977. Wednesday and Thursday nights the lows are expected to drop into the teens. The wet weather is expected to stick around the state until Wednesday before giving way to sunny skies and temperatures in the 40s throughout the state Thursday, according to the weather service.

To the south of storm number one, the weather will be a mixture of rain, snow, and sleet, he says. The storm is expected to begin Wednesday night, with heavier snow on Thursday.

Nailing down totals is not fun -- it'll be 80F today for Pete's sake!

Bottom line is that as of right now it looks like travel will be almost impossible across much of our region from Wednesday afternoon through Friday morning.

There are more storms, after this week's storm ends.

Near Hawarden, Iowa, on the Big Sioux, major flooding occurring now is forecast to dip, but significant rises are expected once warmer temperatures move in and snow melts.

How's the spring weather so far where you live?

Forecasters said this week's storm will swell rivers again, though likely not to the levels seen last month due to the absence of a wet snowpack on frozen ground this time around. Denver is expected to see a foot of snow, and Niobrara, Nebraska, could too.

Even with a limited moisture supply, some powerful thunderstorms are possible, although they likely will cover small swaths.

This will be a WINDY system. Wind gusts could reach up to 60 miles per hour. However, the snow was already blowing and visibility low Wednesday.

High wind and winter storm warnings are in effect for much of Utah. Duluth will only see an inch of snow or less overnight, according to the Weather Service.

The National Weather Service says blizzard conditions will be possible.

Noon Wednesday until 6 AM MDT Thursday. But we're still getting some of it. We also think the need to include Denver proper (and numerous northern/northwestern urban corridor communities) is borderline.

"We usually get a winter storm sometime in April", the National Weather Service's Kari Fleegel told South Dakota Public Broadcasting 's Gary Ellenbolt. Not a huge severe threat it appears, but certainly some hail will be possible with some of the stronger cells that develop. "And the last spring forecast I saw does not look favorable for us at all".

With all this talk of snow and cold, we might as well add fire to the mix.
