Although the city is not officially in the blizzard warnings, it will experience a taste of that volatility from time to time Saturday.


People will be trying to dig out in the afternoon under horrible conditions. This storm is a little different in the sense that we are under an arctic airmass while it's snowing. You will be shoveling in sub-zero wind chills! Exposed skin is very dangerous, and people should take caution. Cold air allows snow to stack quickly, and it is blown around easier, which lowers visibility dramatically.
