This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for south central Nebraska and
portions of north central Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

A powerful, late-season winter storm will bring strong winds and
accumulating snow to the outlook area. The majority of the
outlook area is in a Blizzard Warning. The Blizzard Warning is
already in effect for areas west of Highway 281, while areas along
and east of Highway 281 will have the Blizzard Warning take effect
after 1 AM. In the far southeast corner of the local area, a
Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect at 4 AM for Thayer,
Jewell and Mitchell counties, where snow amounts are expected to
be somewhat lighter. Please refer to the Blizzard Warning and
Winter Weather Advisory statements for more details.

Even in those areas that may not receive as much snow, intense
north-northwest winds sustained at least 30 to 40 MPH and gusting
to around 55 MPH, perhaps locally higher, will be an issue.
Please keep in mind, a Blizzard Warning is primarily based on the
expectation of sharp visibility reductions in blowing snow, and
does not necessarily mean that snow amounts will be heavy in all
areas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

Either a Blizzard Warning or a Winter Weather Advisory continues
until 7 PM Saturday for the entire outlook area. Please
refer to the Blizzard Warning and Winter Weather Advisory
statements for more details. Even in those areas that may not
receive as much snow, very strong north-northwest winds sustained
at least 30 to 40 MPH and gusting to around 55 MPH, perhaps
locally higher, will remain an issue during the day, before
gradually decreasing in intensity Saturday night. By sunrise
Sunday, even the gusts should be under 30 MPH.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotters are encouraged to report snowfall amounts tonight into
Saturday, along with any possible damage from high winds.
