That means blizzards are possible for the area, and the National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning until 7 a.m. Monday.

The blizzard warning for the Salina area remains in effect from 9 a.m.to midnight (15 hours). Numerous roads in Southeast Minnesota and Northern Iowa are under a No Travel advisory because roads remain impassable. In addition, wind gusts of 30 to 50mph are expected, creating blowing and drifting snow as well as whiteout conditions. The seasonal total now stands at 61.4 inches, which is nearly 2-feet above what is considered the city's normal seasonal snowfall total. Snow will be heavy at times in Denver - spreading east across the plains with lighter snows in the metro area by daybreak.

The majority of the area will see rain nearly all day long with the exception being in northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas.

The snow is wet and could cause slippery roads, so the National Weather Service recommends caution for drivers.
