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 SATURDAY

NO HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS EXPECTED AT THIS TIME.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY

A WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FOR THE OUTLOOK AREA SUNDAY
THROUGH MONDAY. A MIX OF ICE, SLEET, SNOW, AND RAIN APPEARS
LIKELY. FREEZING RAIN APPEARS TO AFFECT MAINLY SOUTHEAST NEBRASKA
SATURDAY NIGHT, LIFTING NORTHWARD DURING THE DAY SUNDAY AND
CONTINUING INTO MONDAY. THE HEAVIEST AMOUNTS ARE LIKELY TO OCCUR
SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY. SIGNIFICANT ICE ACCUMULATIONS ARE
POSSIBLE FROM THIS EVENT ACROSS PARTS OF THE AREA. SNOW AMOUNTS
ARE CURRENTLY IN THE LIGHT TO MODERATE CATEGORY; ESPECIALLY ACROSS
NORTHEAST AND EAST CENTRAL NEBRASKA AND WESTERN IOWA.

THE PRESENT TRACK HAS THE HIGHEST IMPACTS FOR SOUTHEAST NEBRASKA
AND SOUTHWEST IOWA. ALTHOUGH THERE IS GOOD CONSISTENCY IN THE
STORM TRACK THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT, FOR SUNDAY AND MONDAY, THERE
ARE BIGGER DIFFERENCES AS THE STORM MAY TRY TO CONTINUE PIVOTING
NORTHWESTWARD WITH WARMER AIR MAKING IT FARTHER NORTHWARD. CHANGES
IN THE TRACK WILL AFFECT THE AMOUNT OF ICE, SLEET, SNOW, AND IOWA.

IMPACTS WILL LIKELY INCLUDE DIFFICULT TRAVEL DUE TO ICE AND SNOW
COVERED ROADWAYS...POTENTIALLY TREE AND POWER LINE DAMAGE.

TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST TO WARM INTO THE 40S WEDNESDAY AND
THURSDAY. THIS COULD RESULT IN ICE ACTION ON RIVERS. IF WATER
EQUIVALENTS OF THE MIXED PRECIPITATION OF ONE HALF TO ONE INCH
OCCUR, MUCH OF THIS WOULD RUN OFF DUE TO THE FROZEN GROUND RESULTING
IN RIVER RISES.

BE SURE TO KEEP UP WITH THE LATEST FORECASTS CONCERNING THIS
DEVELOPING WINTER STORM.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TONIGHT OR SATURDAY.
