Snow showers with areas of blowing snow before 3am, then snow showers likely between 3am and 4am, then scattered snow showers after 4am. Low around -1. Wind chill values as low as -20. Blustery, with a northwest wind 15 to 22 mph, with gusts as high as 33 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%.

Please tell me what the difference is between blowing snow before 3am, snow showers between 3am and 4am and scattered snow showers after 4am. There is also a wind chill warning and wind chill watch that goes through February 16.

I am really posting this because it depresses me to see it and I want to talk about it. I have asthma and can’t go out when it is below zero. I’ve been feeling trapped since I first saw the forecast. I get almost claustrophobic when I think about it.
