...BLIZZARD WATCH IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH LATE
SUNDAY NIGHT...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SIOUX FALLS HAS ISSUED A BLIZZARD
WATCH...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH LATE
SUNDAY NIGHT.

* TIMING...BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ARE POSSIBLE FROM SUNDAY AFTERNOON
  THROUGH LATE SUNDAY NIGHT DUE TO A COMBINATION OF STRONG WINDS
  AND FALLING SNOW.

* WINDS / VISIBILITIES...WINDS GUSTING AS HIGH AS 50 MPH COULD
  CAUSE WHITEOUT CONDITIONS IN BLOWING SNOW. SIGNIFICANT DRIFTING
  OF THE SNOW THAT FELL EARLIER IN THE WEEK IS LIKELY.

* SNOW ACCUMULATIONS...TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF UP TO 1 INCH
  ARE POSSIBLE...BUT HIGHER AMOUNTS MAY BE POSSIBLE IN STRONGER
  SNOW SHOWERS.

* IMPACTS...TRAVEL COULD BECOME VERY DIFFICULT AT TIMES DUE TO
  REDUCED VISIBILITY AND BLOWING SNOW OVER ROADWAYS. RURAL AND
  OPEN AREAS WILL HAVE THE HIGHEST IMPACT.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A BLIZZARD WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR FALLING AND/OR
BLOWING SNOW WITH STRONG WINDS AND EXTREMELY POOR VISIBILITIES.
THIS CAN LEAD TO WHITEOUT CONDITIONS AND MAKE TRAVEL VERY
DANGEROUS.
