This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southwest
Iowa...west central Iowa...east central Nebraska...northeast
Nebraska and southeast Nebraska.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Patchy freezing drizzle is possible tonight over much of eastern
Nebraska and southwest Iowa. A light glaze of ice could develop on
sidewalks, parking lots, and secondary roadways.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

A variety of wintry weather is expected from later Sunday
afternoon through Monday evening as a strong storm system rolls
into the Plains.

Areas of freezing drizzle are possible Sunday morning before
temperatures warm above freezing. Then snow is expected to begin
Sunday afternoon in northeast Nebraska, and could be heavy at
times overnight Sunday night into Monday morning. Strong north
winds are expected as well, creating near-blizzard conditions
Sunday night and Monday.

Over the rest of eastern Nebraska and southwest Iowa, rain or
drizzle is forecast Sunday evening, gradually changing over to a
wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow from west to east
later Sunday night and Monday morning. Mostly light snow is
expected the rest of Monday before the snow moves to the east
Monday evening. Strong northwest winds may produce areas of
blowing snow as well.

Snow amounts over 6 inches are possible in northeast Nebraska,
while amounts taper to about an inch or so near Interstate 80 and
to the southeast in Nebraska, as well as most of west central and
southwest Iowa. Some minor ice accumulations are also possible.

The track and timing of this system will likely need some adjusting
as we move closer to Sunday night, so stay up to date with the
latest forecasts.


Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.
