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

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.

Although spotty flurries or light snow is possible today, a more
organized area of snow will develop across the outlook area this
evening and overnight, before ending by sunrise Sunday. While most
places can expect at least a dusting, a swath 1 to 2 inches of
snow is expected mainly near and east of a line from Kearney,
Nebraska to Mankato, Kansas, including places such as Grand
Island, Hastings, York and Hebron. Localized 3 inch amounts are
possible in this band as well. Winds will only average 10 to 15
MPH during this overnight snow, 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 through tonight, but
reports of 1 inch or more of snowfall would be appreciated.
