Weather turning ugly as blizzard conditions approach

  • Big blizzard headed this way: up to 55 mph winds, 11 inches or more of snow

We've got a very powerful spring storm will bring heavy snow, blizzard conditions, ice, and strong winds and from the Plains eastward into the Great Lakes.

Three deaths have been attributed to the storm system.

Sunday's forecast is for mostly sunny skies, a high of 34 degrees, with north winds of 15-25 miles per hour, gusting to 35. While snowfall accumulations will not be extreme, the combination of wind and snow will create very low visibility and risky travel conditions Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. Sunday's game was also called off because of the storm, which by Saturday night had buried Minneapolis under more than 13 inches of snow (33 centimeters).

For much of the day Saturday, westbound Interstate 80 remained closed from Grand Island to the Wyoming state line, and the eastbound lanes were closed from Wyoming to Chappell.

The storm and powerful winds knocked out power to thousands of customers in MI, which was expected to get more snow and ice through the weekend. The game was rescheduled as part of a doubleheader for Sunday. "You might say 'Oh, it's not a tornado, ' but you can still get serious damage", Hoeth said.

You can see how limited visibility is as a result of the storm in this video. In Louisiana, winds downed a tree onto a mobile home in Haughton, killing a sleeping 2-year-old girl inside, according to the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office.

Strong winds may make travel hard and unsafe. "So we do have a lot of moisture with it, and a lot of energy", Beitlich said.

A wildfire in northwestern Oklahoma burned more than 120,000 acres Thursday and forced hundreds of people to evacuate their homes.

Just Friday, the high in Lincoln was 82 degrees.

Summer-like warmth spread up the East Coast in some areas on Saturday, all the way to New England, where record high temperatures are possible.
