Kansas, Oct 30 (THAINDIAN News) The winter storm that brought with it loads of snow in western South Dakota and brought chilling rain to North Dakota is moving out of the region. The powerful snowstorm that has blanketed parts of Colorado and Wyoming pushed its cold and freezing winds into northwestern Kansas on Thursday night. Weather forecasters are now saying that high winds could create blizzard conditions in some places too.

According to weather reports, ‘New forecasts posted Thursday night called for 2 to 5 inches in Cheyenne, Sherman and Rawlins counties in the far northwest’. The National Weather Service in Goodland also posted a ‘blizzard warning, with winds of up to 35 mph expected to cut visibility sharply’.

Since the weather worsened so a half-dozen more counties of northwest Kansas were placed under a winter weather advisory and were advised not to venture out in the storm.

Weather Forecasters say that they were expecting 1 to 3 inches of snow before the storm starts to taper off on Friday.
