4 min read

There has been a winter storm watch issued by the United States weather agency, the National Weather Service (NWS), for parts of the country in the middle of the country due to the possibility of a winter storm system developing this week causing traffic delays.

In an report released by the National Weather Service (NWS), the NWS predicts that “a winter storm system” is likely to develop over the central and southern plains on Monday before tracking east-northeastward into the Midwest on Tuesday.

According to the report, there is also a possibility that part of the central US will experience adverse weather during the early stages of January 10 and into early February.

It is expected to snow heavily and there will be strong winds, which may cause some areas to experience blizzard conditions as a result.

At the same time, accumulations of between 15 and 30 cm are possible from now on, with winds gusting as high as 70 kph (43 mph). It is likely that driving conditions will be difficult as a result of reduced visibility caused by blowing snow.

Several areas around the country have also received blizzard warnings from the NWS, such as Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska, according to the NWS report.

According to the National Weather Service, there have been winter storm warnings issued in Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri.

Officials have issued weather warnings and advisories at a variety of locations in the affected area, and in the coming days they will likely update and extend the coverage of these warnings to cover more areas.

It is likely that some areas will be affected by blowing and drifting snow as a result of the heavy snowfall and strong wind gusts, as well as heavy snowfall. Conditions that could lead to a blizzard are possible. In the affected area, there is a possibility of sporadic power outages.

During the extreme winter weather this year, there are expected disruptions in air and ground transport, resulting in traffic delays and delays in commercial trucking on regional highways as a result of severe weather.

Furthermore, driving conditions on secondary roads and rural roads are likely to be hazardous, with authorities even having the option of closing highways if they become too hazardous to travel.

Ground stops at regional airports and deicing operations are also likely to cause delays and cancellations of flights.
