Weather Summary for Portions of the Central Plains
National Weather Service Hastings NE
1041 PM CST Thu Jan 12 2017

There is strong forecast model agreement that a significant winter
storm will severely impact portions of the central plains.
Uncertainty still exists on precipitation type and amounts...but
what appears likely is that there will be a very sizeable swath of
heavy freezing rain across portions of Nebraska and Kansas...which
could have devastating effects on trees and power lines. The
freezing rain will begin across northern Kansas as early as Saturday
afternoon but more likely Saturday night and then spread into
southern Nebraska on Sunday. The heaviest precipitation across north
central Kansas and south central Nebraska is expected to fall Sunday
night into Monday morning. The freezing rain may turn over to rain
southeast of the Tri-Cities by late Sunday night into Monday
potentially lessening ice amounts. However...additional warmth could
result in less snow and sleet and more freezing rain for areas near
the Tri-Cities and to the northwest. Keep up to date with the latest
forecast as a change of a degree or two can result in noteworthy
forecast changes.
