NORTH WINDS HAVE INCREASED TO 20 TO 30 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 45 MPH

RAPIDLY SOUTH. THESE STRONG WINDS WILL BECOME COMMON ACROSS MOST
OF WESTERN AND NORTH CENTRAL NEBRASKA THIS MORNING. BLOWING SNOW
WILL BECOME WIDESPREAD ALONG HIGHWAY 20 WEST OF VALENTINE.

BLAST OF ARCTIC AIR PRODUCES MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES CAUSING THE
ROAD SURFACE TO CROSS THE FREEZING MARK.

IN MUCH COLDER ARCTIC AIR THIS MORNING. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY
IS IN EFFECT THIS MORNING FOR SHERIDAN...CHERRY...KEYA PAHA AND
