This hazardous weather outlook is for east central...north
central and northeast Kansas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and tonight.

Patchy freezing drizzle will be possible across the outlook area
beginning late tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Patchy freezing drizzle is possible across the outlook area for
Friday morning. A light glaze of ice cannot be ruled out in
isolated locations, resulting in locally slippery surfaces.

A potentially major winter storm could affect portions of the
region on Saturday. Heavy snow will be possible Saturday
afternoon and evening, especially across parts of north-central
and northeast Kansas, which could combine with strong winds to
produce significant blowing and drifting snow. Blizzard
conditions will be possible, and dangerous travel conditions may
occur. The greatest chance for the most dangerous winter-weather
conditions will be along and northwest of a line from Council
Grove to Hiawatha, where a Winter Storm Watch is in effect.
Elsewhere, the potential for snow and strong winds will exist,
though snowfall accumulations are presently forecast to be lower.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for south central Nebraska and

Light snow is likely tonight, especially within counties near and
north of Interstate 80, and near and west of Highway 281. Most

although some spots mainly north of Nebraska Highway 92 could
push 2 inches. After midnight, light freezing drizzle could also
develop, mainly north and west of the Tri Cities, potentially

snow and possible freezing drizzle, a Winter Weather Advisory is
in effect late tonight for areas mainly northwest of a Beaver
City, Kearney, Greeley line. Please refer to the Advisory
statement for more details.

Minor flooding is occurring along the Platte river in east-
central Hall County, particularly near the Interstate 80 and
Highway 281 interchange. Please refer to the Flood Advisory
statement for more details.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Freezing drizzle and light snow will continue to be possible
across portions of the area on Friday, especially during the
morning before temperatures warm up a bit. Areas north and west of
the Tri Cities are in a Winter Weather Advisory through noon. Please
refer to Advisory statement for more details.

Freezing drizzle, light snow, and sleet will also remain possible
into Friday night.

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for the entire outlook area
Saturday daytime through Saturday evening, as a significant
winter storm will impact the area. Precipitation type and amounts
will be dependent upon the storm track, so be sure to stay up to
date on the latest forecasts. Please refer to the Winter Storm
Watch for more details.

Minor flooding is expected to continue along the Platte river in
east-central Hall County, potentially for several more days.
