• Daily Leader staff report

 

The National Weather Service in Dodge City has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the area beginning Thursday afternoon.

A strong winter storm will move from the southern Rockies across the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles on Thursday, according to the NWS.

As the storm moves out into the Plains Thursday, snow will spread northward into Southwest Kansas and may be heavy at times Thursday afternoon and evening before tapering off Thursday night.

Areas in the watch include the counties of Morton, Stevens, Seward and Meade, as well as the cities of Elkhart, Richfield, Hugoton, Moscow, Liberal, Kismet, Meade and  Fowler.

Snowfall accumulations of 5 to 8 inches will be possible with the highest amounts along the Oklahoma border.

Northeast winds of 15 to 25 mph will create areas of blowing and drifting snow – especially Thursday afternoon. Travel will become difficult by late Thursday morning as snow quickly accumulates on area roadways.
