The Panhandle has taken the brunt of the cold. On Monday, the high in Scottsbluff hit 52 degrees. It will struggle to get to 17 today; actual temperature, not the wind chill.
The National Weather Service expects lows in Nebraska this evening to dip down to 7 to 14 degrees in eastern and central Nebraska. Out west, temperatures will plunge to between five above and five below.
This arctic blast out of Canada is expected to settle in for the week. It slowly is moving its way across the country.
Snow fell throughout Nebraska, but just enough to make things white. Snow accumulations are much deeper north of us. St. Augusta, Minnesota reported 16-and-a-half inches of snow.
