The second day of the New Year greeted some Nebraskans in the central and northern parts of the state with dense fog and some freezing drizzle. National Weather Service – Omaha Meteorologist Becky Kern says road conditions were a bit dangerous in western Nebraska earlier today and there were a few accidents reported on I-80.
Heavy sweaters and warm boots may be the wardrobe of necessity in the next few days. An arctic air mass is heading our way and with it brings very cold conditions. Kern says, “Temperatures will be noticeably colder than what they have been during the holiday break. Temperatures basically for mid-week into late week we have highs in the teens and lows in the single digits and wind chills we are looking at 5 below to 15 below on average.”
Dry conditions should continue at least in the eastern part of the state. Kern says we really haven’t seen much snowfall so far this season and there is none in the seven day forecast. She issued a reminder that weather is fluid so things can change but if you really have your heart set on snow to head north.
