region, with accumulating snow expected along the I-25 corridor

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

A Freeze Warning will be in effect for most of the outlook area
this evening into Saturday morning. There is high confidence that
this will be a widespread hard, killing freeze, which will
effectively end the 2020 growing season. Please refer to the
Freeze Warning statement for more details.

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

Between late Saturday night and Monday morning, but especially on
Sunday into Sunday night, a moderately strong storm system will
likely bring some accumulating snow to much of the outlook area.
Although still subject to at least minor adjustments in later
forecasts, current projections suggest that most of the local
area will receive between 1 and 4 inches, with the highest amounts
favoring Nebraska counties along and north of Interstate
80 and the lowest amounts favoring north central Kansas. Moderate
to strong north winds sustained around 20 MPH and gusting around
30 MPH will accompany the snow, likely resulting in reduced
visibility and possibly some drifting.

In addition to upcoming snow potential, some of the coldest air
on record for this early in the fall season will invade the
region, especially between Sunday and Tuesday. On both Monday and
Tuesday mornings, wind chills within a few degrees either side of
zero are likely across much of the area.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight.
