Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Wichita KS
501 AM CST Mon Jan 22 2018

501 AM CST Mon Jan 22 2018

This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Central Kansas,
South Central Kansas and Southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Light snow will spread across central Kansas during the morning
hours. Snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are expected, with the
higher amounts located north of Interstate 70. Much higher
accumulations will occur across northwest Kansas and Nebraska.
Additionally, strong and gusty northwest winds will impact the
entire area, resulting in reduced visibility in blowing snow. A
winter weather advisory has been issued for Lincoln, Russell,
Barton, Ellsworth, and Saline counties.

The strong northwest winds will support very high grassland fire
danger in areas that do not receive snow.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

A very high grassland fire danger is also expected Thursday and
Friday due to mild temperatures and strong south winds. Please avoid
outdoor burning.

Another storm system may spread light snow across portions of the
area Friday night through early Saturday. At this time, snow
accumulations and impacts appear to be minimal.


Spotter activation is not anticipated today or tonight. But reports
of snow accumulation amounts would be greatly appreciated.
