...At Least Minor Accumulation Of Wet, Slushy Snow Likely This
Evening-Overnight In Counties Along The Nebraska-Kansas Border...

Although the primary, west-to-east oriented band of potentially
heavier snow is expected to focus just north of this area this
evening and overnight, at least minor snow accumulation ranging
from a dusting to perhaps more than 1 inch is possible. For those
areas that do receive snow, it will be of the wet/slushy variety,
and could accumulate on roads if it falls heavily enough.

Given that the main snow band is currently expected to remain
just north of this area, there is not a formal Winter Weather
Advisory in effect at this time. However, trends will be closely
monitored tonight, just in case the main snow band sets up
slightly farther south than currently expected.



Hazardous Weather Outlook

Hazardous Weather Outlook...CORRECTED
National Weather Service Hastings NE
437 PM CDT Sat Mar 25 2023

437 PM CDT Sat Mar 25 2023

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

.DAY ONE...This Evening and Tonight.

Through around 10 PM, there remains a chance for a few, weak
thunderstorms mainly near and south of the Nebraska-Kansas state
line. Isolated instances of small hail cannot be ruled out.

However, by far the main issue this evening and overnight is the
likelihood for a fairly narrow, generally west-to-east oriented
band of wet, slushy snow to develop, particularly within some Nebraska
counties between Highway 92 and the Kansas border. Snow
accumulation will likely vary considerably depending on exactly
where the main band develops, but a Winter Weather Advisory is in
effect overnight for all local Nebraska counties along the
Interstate 80 and Highway 6 corridors, along with Polk and Merrick
counties, where the greatest potential for at least a few inches
of snow exists. Please refer to the Advisory statement for more

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect through 9 AM Sunday
for all local Nebraska counties along the Interstate 80 and
Highway 6 corridors, along with Polk and Merrick counties. Please
refer to the Advisory statement for more details.

Monday into Monday evening, another round of at least light
accumulating snow is possible across parts of the outlook area.
However, details such as specific snow amounts are still very
uncertain, so check back as this gets closer in time.

Finally, yet another, but stronger weather system looks to affect
the area Thursday into Friday. Although significant uncertainty
remains in the forecast details given that this weather system is
so far out in time, very preliminarily, it appears that this
system could have the potential to produce thunderstorms in the
warmer air on the front side of the system mainly Thursday evening
and overnight, and then perhaps some snow in the colder air on
the back side of the system on Friday.


Spotter activation will not be needed through tonight, but any
reports of measured snow accumulation would be appreciated.

Hazardous Weather Outlook
National Weather Service Wichita KS
326 PM CDT Sat Mar 25 2023

326 PM CDT Sat Mar 25 2023

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

.DAY ONE...This Evening and Tonight

A few thunderstorms are possible through early this evening,
generally along and north of a Kingman to Wichita to Iola line. A
few of the showers and storms across portions of central and south
central Kansas will be capable of pea size hail and 45 to 50 mph
wind gusts.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

There is a slight chance for light snow or rain mixed with snow
across a portion of central Kansas, during the predawn hours of
early Monday morning and again early Tuesday morning. No snow
accumulation is expected.

The combination of warmer temperatures and increasing south winds
could lead to very high grassland fire danger Thursday and Friday,
mainly during the afternoon hours.

There is a chance of thunderstorms Thursday evening through Friday
evening. The latest data still supports the potential for severe
storms late next week. Check later forecasts and outlooks for any
changes on the severe weather expectations.


Spotter activation is not anticipated tonight.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of southwest
Iowa...west central Iowa...east central Nebraska...northeast
Nebraska and southeast Nebraska.

.DAY ONE...Tonight and Sunday

Accumulating snowfall of 1 to 4 inches is possible after midnight
along and 50 miles north and south of Interstate 80. Warm ground
temperatures may allow much of the snow to melt, but snowfall
rates should be high enough that snow begins to accumulate after 4
am. The heaviest snowfall will be from 4 am through 8 am. In
addition, a few non-severe thunderstorms are possible along the
Kansas and Nebraska border tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday night through Saturday

Light snow is possible Monday night into Tuesday. Current
projections are for a trace to 1 inch snowfall generally south of
a line from Columbus NE to Omaha-Council Bluffs to Hancock IA.

Thunderstorms are possible Thursday night into Friday across
southeast Nebraska. The potential for severe storms is uncertain
this far out but stay tuned to later forecasts regarding the
potential for active weather late in the school/work week.
