This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southwest
Iowa...west central Iowa...east central Nebraska...northeast
Nebraska and southeast Nebraska.

.DAY ONE...Tonight and Friday

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday night through Thursday

A strong winter storm is still expected to impact the area Sunday
into Monday. Patchy freezing drizzle could occur early Sunday
morning ahead of the storm which could create a light ice glaze.
Then temperatures warm and any ice should melt, with rain chances
into Sunday afternoon. However, the rain changes to snow from
northwest to southeast Sunday night. Accumulating snow will be
possible, especially along and north of Interstate 80, where the
snow could be heavy with up to a few inches possible. Light snow
amounts are forecast south of Interstate 80. Travel will eventually
become impacted Sunday night into Monday with areas of blowing
snow, and northwest winds of 25 to 35 mph with higher gusts. Near
blizzard conditions could occur in open areas.

The storm is currently in the eastern Pacific Ocean, and the eventual
low track could change. Please continue to stay up to date with
the forecast as this winter storm gets closer to the area.


Spotter activation will not be needed tonight or Friday.
