High winds, snow showers could form squalls today

Forecasters are warning about the danger of possible snow squalls today.

According to the National Weather Service, snow squalls are intense bursts of snow with strong gusty winds. They say that the squalls can rapidly reduce visibility making travel conditions treacherous and leading to chain reaction accidents. The squalls are usually short lived. You could see snow squall warnings across central Indiana today, similar to a severe thunderstorm warning.

The weather service is warning that wind gusts of up to 34 mph are possible, but snow accumulations are expected to be less than a tenth of an inch.
