The wind increases as the pressure gradient tightens, causing significant blowing and drifting. This will result in blizzard conditions. Look for gusts to exceed 40 to possibly 50 mph. Travel will become difficult if not impossible. With colder air moving in as well wind chill values will drop to dangerous levels meaning frostbite could occur in 15 minutes or less on exposed skin.
