THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND
PORTIONS OF NORTH CENTRAL KANSAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

THIS AFTERNOON...THE COMBINATION OF GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS AND LOW
RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES IS FORECAST TO RESULT IN NEAR CRITICAL
FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ACROSS PORTIONS OF THE OUTLOOK AREA. THE
BEST CHANCE FOR THESE CONDITIONS WILL BE ALONG AND WEST OF A LINE
FROM LEXINGTON NEBRASKA TO BELOIT KANSAS.

THIS EVENING THROUGH ABOUT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT...SUSTAINED NORTHWEST
WINDS OF 25 TO 30 MPH AND GUSTS NEAR 40 MPH AT TIMES WILL BE
POSSIBLE...MAINLY ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA ALONG
AND NORTH OF INTERSTATE 80.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.

ALTHOUGH STILL TOO EARLY TO DETERMINE SNOW AMOUNTS...IT IS LOOKING
MORE AND MORE LIKELY THAT ACCUMULATING SNOWFALL WILL BE REALIZED
ACROSS MUCH OF THE OUTLOOK AREA THIS WEEKEND...PERHAPS STARTING AS
EARLY AS SATURDAY MORNING BUT MORE LIKELY SATURDAY NIGHT INTO
EARLY SUNDAY MORNING. IN ADDITION TO THE POTENTIAL FOR
SNOWFALL...THERE ARE ALSO INDICATIONS THAT A STRONG NORTH OR
NORTHWEST WIND...SUSTAINED AT AROUND 20 MPH WITH LOCALLY HIGHER
GUSTS...WILL OVERTAKE THE AREA SATURDAY NIGHT AND INTO THE DAY
SUNDAY. THIS STRONG WIND...IF REALIZED...COULD PROMOTE PERIODIC
VISIBILITY RESTRICTION IN BLOWING SNOW. PLEASE CONTINUE MONITORING
THE FORECAST FOR THE POTENTIAL OF SNOW AND STRONG WIND THIS
WEEKEND.
