A wild, windy weather front reached the North Platte area shortly after dark Sunday, and winds are expected to roar through Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service in North Platte.
There is a chance of rain and snow before 5 a.m. Monday morning, but less than an inch of snow is predicted.
The wind will be blustery, starting at 10-15 miles an hour out of the east-northeast, and increasing to 20-25 mph in the night out of the northwest.
Overnight winds could gust as high as 35 mph. The overnight low will be around 30 degrees.
Winds will remain strong and could reach dangerous levels Monday through Tuesday night, the weather service said, although daytime highs will be in the 40s.
A blizzard warning is in effect for South Dakota and northern Nebraska, where the brunt of the storm will hit, with winds gusting up to 60 mph, the weather service said.
