This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for south central Nebraska and
portions of north central Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Overnight.

Areas of light to moderate snow will persist across most of the
outlook area overnight, while gradually ending from northwest-to-
southeast, and vacating the area completely between 4 and 6 AM.
While all areas should see at least a dusting to one-half inch,
areas mainly northeast of a line from Lexington, to Red Cloud
Nebraska, to Mankato Kansas, are more favored to see amounts of 1
to 2 inches, and perhaps locally slightly higher. This includes
the Tri Cities. Winds will only average 10 to 15 MPH during this
snow event, minimizing blowing snow issues.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

Sunday night into Monday morning, a strong cold front will
promote another round of snow, with most of the outlook area
currently expected to receive between one-half inch and 1 inch.
Despite the light amounts, this system will be accompanied by
more wind, with northerly gusts around 30 MPH.

Early next week, bitterly cold wind chills will return for a few
days. On Monday morning, areas mainly north of Interstate 80 in
Nebraska will see wind chills around -15 degrees. Even colder
readings of -15 to -30 degrees will occur Monday night into
Tuesday morning. One last round of cold wind chills will occur
Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, with values as cold as -15
to -20 degrees, mainly northeast of a line from Ord to Hebron


Spotter activation will not be needed overnight, but reports
of 1 inch or more of snowfall would be appreciated.
