...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO
9 AM CDT MONDAY...

The National Weather Service in Omaha/Valley has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for snow accumulations, which is in effect from
7 PM this evening to 9 AM CDT Monday.

* TIMING...Although some sleet and light snow are possible this
  morning, more steady snow and potentially sleet are expected to
  develop late this afternoon. By evening all precipitation will
  be snow. Snow will last into early Monday morning.

* SNOW ACCUMULATIONS...2 to as much as 5 inches of snow are
  possible.

* WINDS...North and northwest winds of 15 to 30 mph are expected
  tonight. Although this may lead to some blowing of the snow
  while falling, blowing and drifting snow is not expected to be
  an impact.

* IMPACTS...The heavy wet snow will cause roadways to become
  slushy and potentially snow packed creating hazardous winter
  driving conditions. Isolated tree damage is also possible in the
  higher snow accumulations area due to the weight of the snow.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means that periods of snow
will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow
covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while
driving.
