March is going to come in like a lion in eastern Nebraska. National Weather Service in Valley Meteorologist Dave Fobert says Friday’s warmer temperatures will allow the moisture to fall as rain in the eastern part of the state in the afternoon. However, by evening temperatures will drop and then comes the snow.
Fobert says the cold front now is moving through the northeast pat of the state and as it slides to the south very cold air follows. The snow will be a prolonged period that will develop by late Saturday morning into the evening hours. As you get into Saturday night and Sunday morning there will be some lingering snowfall with some areas seeing about 6″.
This is going to be a light, fluffy snowfall due to extremely cold temperatures. By Saturday morning temperatures will range from 5-below to 10 degrees and they won’t budge much during the day. The wind will be out of the north up to 15-mph and that will bring those wind chill values down to about 25-below.
