This Will Produce Whiteout Conditions Which Will Make Driving Extremely Dangerous If Not Impossible.

Remember... A Blizzard Warning Is Issued When Sustained Wind Speeds Or Frequent Gusts Of Over 35 Mph Are Expected With Considerable Falling And/Or Blowing And Drifting Snow. Visibilities Will Become Poor With Whiteout Conditions At Times. Those Venturing Outdoors May Become Lost Or Disoriented So Persons In The Warning Area Are Advised To Stay Indoors.
