A powerful winter storm continues to slowly churn eastward across the state bringing widespread blizzard conditions to many areas.

Heavier snow is falling in some of our northeastern counties.
Winds have also been increasing all morning and are now gusting from 30 to 50 mph in many spots. This is creating blizzard-like conditions and dropping wind chills below zero.
A Blizzard Warning has now been issued for many areas until 6pm and Winter Storm Warnings remain in effect until 11am Saturday morning.
Snowfall totals so far have been impressive with many spots seeing well over a foot of snow.
