.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A winter weather advisory is in effect for all of eastern Nebraska
and southwest Iowa through 6 PM.

Freezing rain and freezing drizzle are expected through the
morning in areas from the Kansas and Missouri borders to 40 miles
north of Interstate 80, generally from Columbus to Tekamah and
Onawa. The freezing precipitation is expected to mix with or
change to snow by late morning or early afternoon before ending
late afternoon or early evening. Ice accumulations up to two
tenths of an inch with snow totals of 1 to 2 inches are possible.

In northeast Nebraska north of the Columbus to Tekamah and Onawa
line, mainly snow is expected through the day with total
accumulation up to 3 inches. There could be a period of freezing
drizzle during the morning which would produce a light glaze of
ice before snow become more prominent.

The precipitation will end west to east during the afternoon, and
should be well east of the Missouri River and southwest Iowa by
mid evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

The weather pattern will turn somewhat active again by the mid
part of next week, with chances for rain and snow from Wednesday
into Thursday.


Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight. However
spotters are encouraged to report the type of winter
precipitation falling and any accumulations to the National
Weather Service in Omaha.
