It might have seemed like spring over the weekend, but winter has returned in Nebraska.
It might just be an encore performance.
We had record highs throughout Nebraska on Saturday. It turned milder and windier Sunday, but remained pleasant. Now, the cold has moved in. So far, the snow hasn’t.
The National Weather Service reports only trace amounts of snow in scattered parts of Nebraska. Not enough snow fell in Grand Island, Hastings, and Norfolk to really record an amount. A trace has been reported at the Valentine airport as well as Eppley Air Field in Omaha.
Temperatures have fallen from their record highs on Saturday into the 30s and even the 20s in parts of Nebraska.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Josh Boustead says any snow that falls today will mostly fall in northern Nebraska. It shouldn’t be much and shouldn’t last, but even more snow could be coming.
“Again, when they’re quick moving systems like this and generally come out of the northwest, we don’t expect a lot of snow with those, but another little dusting or a little bit of accumulation is possible then on Wednesday night,” Boustead tells Nebraska Radio Network.
Boustead says once we clear these two bumps, temperatures will warm.
“It does look like, at least to start the month of March, getting into a warmer period with maybe some chances for some actual just rain as we head towards early next week.”
