This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of central...south
central...southwest and west central Kansas.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

Day 1 Discussion
----------------

Brief periods of light freezing drizzle will be possible this
afternoon through early evening across portions of central
Kansas, including in the vicinity of the I-70 corridor. Although
significant ice accumulations are not expected, roads may become
slick in spots.

Day 1 Hazards
-------------

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.

Days 2-7 Discussion
-------------------

Snow and blowing snow conditions will be possible across portions
of southwest and central Kansas Friday night into early Saturday
morning as a winter storm moves out of the Rockies into the Western
High Plains. Although potential snow accumulations remain uncertain
at this time, there is higher confidence for strong gusty north
winds developing behind the cold front. This will increase the
potential for blowing and drifting snow creating hazardous
traveling conditions.

----------------
* Thursday
  No hazards.

* Friday
  - Excessive cold: Limited risk
  - Non thunderstorm wind: Limited risk
  - Ice accumulation: Elevated risk

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Fog and freezing fog will impact much of the area through at least
this morning. Temperatures are at or below freezing for some
locations, so watch out for patchy slick spots on roadways this
morning.

Patchy to areas of light freezing drizzle is expected this
afternoon through tonight, mainly along and north of a line
extending from Great Bend to McPherson to Emporia. Very light ice
accumulation will likely create slick roads at times.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Accumulating snow is possible Friday evening through Saturday, as a
storm system approaches from the west. It remains too early to
predict specific snow amounts, as minor fluctuations in the
system`s strength and track will have big ramifications on the
forecast. However, current data and trends suggest many locations
could see at least an inch or two. Combined with strong north winds,
near-blizzard conditions are possible at times. Furthermore, much
colder air combined with the strong winds will produce sub-zero wind
chills. Please check later forecasts and outlooks over the next few
days as details become more clear.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated today or tonight.

This Outlook is for Northwest and West Central Arkansas as well as
much of Eastern Oklahoma.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

DISCUSSION...
No hazardous weather is anticipated through tonight.

SPOTTER AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT ACTION STATEMENT...
Spotter Activation Not Expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.
THURSDAY...No Hazards.
FRIDAY...Thunderstorm Potential...High Wind Potential.
SATURDAY...Winter Weather Potential...High Wind Potential.
SUNDAY...No Hazards.
MONDAY...High Wind Potential.
TUESDAY...No Hazards.

EXTENDED DISCUSSION...
An arctic cold front will push thru the region late Friday night
into Saturday morning, ushering in a very cold air-mass. Isolated
thunderstorms will be possible ahead of the front Friday night, a
few of which could be strong across southeast Oklahoma with the
threat for hail.

The precipitation will transition from rain to a wintry mix to
snow as colder air filters into the area behind the arctic front.
Travel impacts will be possible with the potential for accumulating
snow greatest along and north of I-40. North winds will gust 30
to 40 mph behind the front. It is important to note that we are
still several days out and the details will continue to be refined
in the coming days. Stay tuned to the latest forecasts as we get
closer to the weekend.

In addition to the potential travel impact from accumulating snow,
dangerous wind chills are likely Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Wind chills in the single digits are expected as temperatures drop
into the teens across much of the area with north winds at 10 to
20 mph.

Another fast moving low pressure system will move into the Southern
Plains on Monday with strong and gusty south winds developing
during the day.
