At 740 AM CST/640 AM MST/, Doppler radar indicated the back edge of
an area of light snow along a line extending from 9 miles south of

drifting has occurred across the Sandhills and is expected to
continue this morning.  Some roads may be blocked by snow
drifts...especially sand roads. The strong winds should diminish
from west to east this morning.

All of this snow was part of a major winter storm which has produced

Nebraska.
