Another major winter storm is pushing through the West and will affect the Plains into this weekend. Blizzard Warnings have been issued from the Front Range to the Black Hills, with winter weather alerts from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Ocean. Strong winds and heavy snow will create nearly impossible travel conditions. Heavy snow will fall from the Great Lakes to the Cascades. Some areas may see a foot of new snowfall accumulation. Ice is also a concern, with sleet and freezing rain likely from the Northern Plains into the Northeast. The low pressure center will move out of the Rockies and into the Plains tonight into Friday. Snow will become widespread and heavy at times. The wind will increase with gusts above 40 mph. Significant blowing snow and near zero visibility is likely, especially in the Blizzard Warning areas. The low will move into the Ohio Valley Saturday and the Appalachians Sunday. Snow and ice will spread across the Great Lakes. The heaviest accumulations will push into Canada by Sunday night.
