A strong, but thankfully rather fast moving upper level low pressure system will spread a swath of snow across primarily central and southern Nebraska along with far northern Kansas today, with snow tapering off from west to east this afternoon. Across most of south central Nebraska, storm total accumulations of 5-7 inches are expected, with locally higher amounts possible. Farther south into north central Kansas, accumulations are forecast to range from 2-4 inches along the Highway 36 corridor, to 1-2 inches along and south of Highway 24. In addition, north to northeasterly winds of 15-25 mph will cause blowing and drifting snow, thus making driving difficult during this time period.
Most snow will accumulate between the mid-morning and mid-afternoon hours
