Nebraska and southeast Nebraska.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Some light freezing drizzle could develop late tonight over

morning. Light freezing drizzle could affect portions of eastern
Nebraska Friday morning, generally along and south of I-80. The
heaviest and most impactful snowfall is expected Friday

higher amounts possible.

Much colder air will filter into the region this weekend, sending wind
chills tumbling to sub zero readings.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of north central
Illinois...northwest Illinois...west central Illinois...east
central Iowa...northeast Iowa...southeast Iowa and northeast
Missouri.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Areas of fog, locally dense, will occur this morning south of
Interstate 80. An area of light snow or flurries will move across
northeast Iowa and northwest Illinois this morning, north of
Highway 30. Only a dusting is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

A winter storm system will likely produce widespread accumulating
snow across the area from Friday afternoon through Saturday.
Several inches of snow accumulation will be possible with this
system by Saturday, along with strong gusty winds. The winds
may produce blowing and drifting snow, along with significantly
reduced visibilties adding to the hazard. The storm system is
starting to become better defined and Winter Storm Watches,
Warnings and Advisories may be issued later today. Stay tuned for
later forecasts and updates concerning this potentially
significant winter storm system.

Very cold temperatures and wind chills are expected to follow in
behind the departing storm system for Saturday night through
Monday. Wind chill readings will drop to the single digits to
teens below zero for both Sunday and Monday mornings.

Longer range indications suggest another winter system may produce
accumulating snow in or near the Outlook area Monday night and Tuesday.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today or tonight.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Missouri
Ozarks and extreme southeast Kansas.

  A storm system will approach the region over the weekend,
  potentially bringing some minor snow accumulations to the

  risk for flooding of low lying areas.

  snow to the area early next week. Gusty winds are expected with
  this weekend system and again early next week.

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Areas of very light freezing drizzle will remain possible through
sunrise across portions of north-central, central and east-central
Kansas. Watch for patchy slick roads where temperatures are below
freezing.

Also, patchy to areas of dense fog will continue across much of the
area through at least mid-morning, which may also contribute to
slick roads where temperatures are below freezing.

Additional dense fog may redevelop tonight across portions of
north-central, central and east-central Kansas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Rain is expected to change to snow from northwest to southeast late
Friday afternoon through Friday night across the region, and end
from northwest to southeast Saturday morning through early
afternoon. While there remains some uncertainty, current indications
suggest snow amounts of a dusting to two inches are possible
areawide, with locally higher amounts possible.

Strong and gusty north winds will accompany the snow, which could
drastically reduce visibilities at times in falling and blowing
snow, supporting hazardous travel conditions.

Furthermore, colder temperatures combined with the strong winds
will support wind chills near zero at times through early Sunday.

Another winter system could impact Mid-America sometime early to mid
next week, although there remains too much uncertainty at this time
to mention specifics.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated today or tonight.
