.NOW...

At 1250 AM CST/1150 PM MST/, Doppler radar indicated the leading edge
of an area of snow along a line extending from 8 miles west of
Arcadia to 11 miles northeast of Venango, moving southwest at 15 mph.

Moderate snow was falling in the Central Sandhills around
Stapleton...Thedford...Broken Bow and Dunning with visibility around
1 mile. This snow was nearly stationary.

Light to moderate snow is expected overnight with snowfall rates of
up to 1/2 inch per hour. This snow is expected to slowly decrease in
intensity through 6 am CST with light snow and flurries thereafter.

Blowing snow will continue with winds gusting to 35 mph. This will
reduce visibility to less than 1/4 mile in spots overnight. Heavy
drifting has occurred across the Sandhills and is expected to
continue overnight through Friday morning which could result in
blocked roads...especially sand roads.

All of this snow was part of a major winter storm which has produced
6 to 13 inches of snow across parts of Western and North Central
Nebraska.
