Storm gets closer - blizzard warning and wind

There's not much change to the going forecast of a storm system that will move into Kansas for Wednesday, bringing a lot of wind but only some snowfall.

The track of the low will go from around Limon, CO to southeast of Goodland/Colby by Wednesday afternoon. The heaviest snowfall will stretch from northeast Colorado to western Nebraska, but it still looks like some 1-3" snow amounts will fall in far northwest Kansas.

Everybody will see a lot of wind Wednesday with gusts over 50 mph likely, especially farther west.

Severe thunderstorms are going to develop in Missouri early in the afternoon and quickly push east. Some storms will be moving at 50 or 60 mph because of the powerful winds driving this system across the Plains.

Strong winds will begin backing down Thursday, and we will be set up for some nice, fall weather by Friday.
