Strong winds and snow are expected to create blizzard conditions across much of Nebraska and parts of Kansas on Sunday.
Snowfall totals could range in the warnings from 4"-8" and the advisories could see 2"-5". The combination of heavy, wet snow sticking to trees and power lines could result in widespread power outages. Snow will taper off from west to east by midnight Sunday night and early Monday morning.
Even though numerous weather models have come into agreement on many terms, there is still a good amount of uncertainty when it comes to snow totals from this system.
Meteorologists expect the system to move out of the area by late Sunday evening. Winds will be strong from the north-northeast at 20 to 25 miles per hour and wind gusts up near 40 miles per hour. A strong winter storm is developing across the Central Plains.
Heavy snow is falling Sunday morning in parts of Nebraska and Kansas, with it eventually moving into Iowa. As much as a foot was expected in Chicago.

The exception to this is in northern Montgomery County and Pike County, MO along with Pike and northern Greene Counties, IL, where around an inch of snow is possible.
Flight delays and cancellations are likely across the Midwest, as major cities from Kansas City, Missouri, to Chicago will see heavy snow, and possible blizzard conditions in some spots.
Then the advisory extends to Oakland, Livingston, Lapeer and Genesee Counties at 1 a.m. Monday - where three to six inches is expected.
Kluber said the storm was expected to hit the Chicago region sometime Sunday evening.
