drizzle will be possible, bringing the potential for light icing.

inches, with localized amounts up to 7 inches. The heaviest snow
will likely fall northwest of a line from Central City, to
Hastings, to Alma.

central and south central Nebraska.
* WHEN...Precipitation is expected to begin in the form of a light
freezing drizzle Sunday morning and change over to snow by

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...There is still some uncertainty regarding
the track of this storm system and there could be a rather sharp
gradient in the snowfall amounts across this watch area. Stay up
to date with the latest forecast updates for the most current
information as the storm system approaches our area.
