This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of Central Kansas,
South Central Kansas and Southeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Breezy south winds and mild temperatures will support a very high
grassland fire danger today across portions of south-central and
southeast Kansas.

A few thunderstorms are possible late this afternoon and evening
across far southeast Kansas. While severe weather is not expected,
a few strong storms with gusty winds and small hail may be
possible.

Light snow will spread across portions of central and north central
Kansas tonight. Snow accumulations around one inch are possible
through sunrise. Much higher accumulations will occur across
northwest Kansas and Nebraska. Additionally, strong and gusty
northwest winds will develop later tonight, resulting in reduced
visibility in blowing and drifting snow. A winter weather advisory
has been issued for Lincoln and Russell counties.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Light snow will continue moving across portions of central and
east central Kansas Monday morning. Additional snow accumulations
of around one inch are possible generally along and north of I-70.
Additionally, strong and gusty northwest winds will impact the
entire area Monday, with gusts up to 45 mph likely, resulting in
reduced visibilities in falling and blowing snow. A winter weather
advisory has been issued for Lincoln and Russell counties.

The strong northwest winds will support very high grassland fire
danger in areas that do not receive snow. A very high grassland
fire danger is also expected Thursday and Friday due to mild
temperatures and strong south winds. Please avoid outdoor burning.

Another storm system may spread light snow across portions of the
area Friday night through early Saturday. At this time, snow
accumulations and impacts appear to be minimal.

Spotter activation is not anticipated this afternoon or tonight.
