The storm stretches from the Canadian border all the way down to the Mexican border, with blizzard-like conditions from Kansas to Minnesota and strong storms with heavy rain from Texas to IL.

Due to the winter weather conditions, City of Kearney offices, Kearney Public Library and Peterson Senior Center will be closed on Thursday, December 27, 2018.

Blizzards occur when gusts of 35 miles per hour or more mix with snow. Strong northeast winds gusting to 60 km/h will develop Thursday night giving locally reduced visibility in blowing snow.

"The heaviest snow is expected south and east of Denver, but a coating to an inch of snow late Wednesday may lead to de-icing operations and delays on Thursday morning", said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski. "Up to 16" of snow could fall over the highest peaks.

It will be a colder day with highs reaching about 30 degrees with a nasty north wind of 15-30 miles per hour.

"It's a pretty high-fluff snow", Riddle said about the early snowfall Wednesday night.
