.NOW...

At 842 PM CDT, Doppler radar indicated an area of heavy snow from
near Amelia to near Weissert. This snow was drifting west at 5 mph.
Light to moderate snow was underway elsewhere across North Central
Nebraska.

Wind gusts up to 30 mph and snowfall rates of 1 inch per hour will
continue this evening across parts Holt...Garfield and Custer
Counties. The snow is expected to gradually decrease this evening
from west to east before ending late tonight.

Periods of heavy snowfall will cause hazardous travel with heavy
accumulations of slush on roadways. The approach of darkness will
increase the travel hazard. Travel into bands of heavy snow is not
recommended. Travel conditions will rapidly improve once the snow
decreases. Parts of Holt...Garfield and Custer Counties may
experience sporadic power outages.

This harsh winter weather was associated with a powerful spring
storm which will affect North Central Nebraska tonight.

Locations impacted include...
O`neill, Broken Bow, Burwell, Bassett, Taylor, O`Neill, Atkinson,
Stuart, Sargent, Ansley, Ewing, Merna, Chambers, Mason City, Page,
Oconto, Bartlett, Newport, Comstock and Ericson.

This includes the following highways... Highway 183 between mile
markers 74 and 182.
 Highway 20 between mile markers 260 and 327.
 Highway 281 between mile markers 132 and 205.
 Highway 2 between mile markers 269 and 307.
