.NOW...

At 502 AM CST/402 AM MST/, Doppler radar indicated moderate snow
along a line extending from 10 miles east of Elsmere to 16 miles
north of Ringgold. The snow was nearly stationary. Light snow
covered much of Western and North Central Nebraska.

The snow continues to diminish in intensity and this process should
allow for the snow to end from north to south this morning. Snowfall
rates of up to 1/2 inch per hour are expected through 7 am with 1/4
inch per hour or less thereafter.

Blowing snow will continue with winds gusting to 35 mph along and
east of Highway 83. This will reduce visibility to less than 100
yards in spots. Heavy drifting has occurred across the Sandhills and
is expected to continue this morning.  Some roads may be blocked by
snow drifts...especially sand roads.

All of this snow was part of a major winter storm which has produced
6 to 14 inches of snow across parts of Western and North Central
Nebraska.

North Platte, Ogallala, O`neill, Broken Bow, Valentine, Ainsworth,
Gordon, Burwell, Chappell, Rushville, Oshkosh, Bassett, Hay Springs,
