Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Hastings NE
340 AM CST Sun Jan 14 2018

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Early this morning, light snow will continue to gradually depart
the outlook area from northwest-to-southeast, with most places
snow-free by 6 AM.

Late this afternoon into tonight, one more round of precipitation
will track across the outlook area from north-to-south, ending
across most of south central Nebraska by midnight, and across
north central Kansas by sunrise Monday. While most of it will
fall as snow, it could start out as rain, and even feature a very
brief period of freezing rain or sleet within the transition zone,
with little to no ice accumulation. Snow amounts across most of
the outlook area should only range from a dusting up to perhaps
one- half inch, although parts of north central Kansas could see
around 1 inch. Despite these light amounts, north winds gusting at
20 to 30 MPH overnight could result in limited blowing snow.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday.

On Monday morning, wind chill readings as low as -15 to -20
degrees will develop, primarily north of Interstate 80 in

Monday night into Tuesday morning, dangerously cold wind chills
will develop, ranging from around -20 degrees in north central
Kansas, to around -30 north of Interstate 80 in Nebraska. A Wind
Chill Advisory, and perhaps even a Wind Chill Warning, will likely
be needed as Monday night gets closer in time.

Although not as severe as Monday night, one last round of cold
wind chills will occur Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, with
readings as low as -15 to -20 common, primarily in Nebraska.


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