.DAY ONE...Tonight and Monday

A cold front is moving into the area this evening with arctic air
pushing in overnight. Temperatures are forecast to plunge tonight
and Monday morning with a mix of precipitation developing. Freezing
drizzle or light freezing rain should develop late tonight, which
may result in some light icing for the area. A winter weather
advisory remains in effect for northeast Nebraska beginning at
midnight, and for areas along Interstate 80 at 3 am, and areas
toward Wilbur...Auburn, and Glenwood starting at 6am. A rumble of
thunder cannot be ruled out late tonight or early Monday morning
in far southeast Nebraska and southwest Iowa.

Freezing drizzle or light freezing rain will continue Monday
morning, with less than one tenth of an inch of ice accumulation.
This could make the morning commute very slippery.

Across northeast Nebraska, mostly snow is expected with up to an
inch of accumulation there.

The winter weather advisory will remain in effect until Noon.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday night through Sunday

Another round of wintry weather develops Monday night into early

freezing rain develops. Additional icing accumulation around a
tenth or two of an inch could occur across southeast Nebraska and
southwest Iowa. More travel problems could develop.


Spotter activation will not be needed tonight or Monday, however spotters
are encouraged to report ice accumulations and snowfall amounts
to the National Weather Service in Omaha.
