CENTRAL PLAINS MONDAY NIGHT AND MOVE ACROSS THE UPPER MIDWEST
TUESDAY. WHILE THE TRACK OF THIS SYSTEM IS STILL UNCERTAIN...
CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING FOR SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOWFALL DURING THIS
TIME FRAME. CURRENTLY...THE BEST CHANCE FOR SNOW IS OVER THE
SOUTHEASTERN TWO-THIRDS OF THE STATE. IN ADDITION TO THE
SNOW...STRONG WINDS MAY ACCOMPANY THIS SYSTEM WITH BLOWING SNOW ALSO
