"The snow that accumulated from 8 a.m. Saturday through 8 a.m. Sunday was the largest 24-hour period of snowfall."

Heavy wet snow is expected above 6000 feet. Total snow accumulations of 6 to 12 inches, with locally higher amounts possible along with winds gusting as high as 60 MPH for Lawrence, Meade, and Pennington counties.
