Just as Nebraska breaks out of the deep freeze we head right back in. National Weather Service Meteorologist Cathy Zapotocny is keeping a close eye on conditions as large storm system targets the Midwest. She says things start going downhill Wednesday evening with rain changing to snow and much colder temperatures for the rest of the week.
Zapotocny says, “We do have highs only in the teens so much below normal temperatures through the weekend. It will depend on how much snow we do get and we are assessing that today but definitely in the advisory criteria for snow accumulations. We could see higher amounts.”
Zapotocny says one to five inches across the forecast area is expected but that amount will likely be adjusted as the storm nears. This is a quick moving storm so we could easily pick up higher amounts.
Snowfall will continue Wednesday night into Thursday but then strong winds and colder temperatures. The wind chill factor by noon on Thursday could be ten degrees below zero. Those conditions will remain through the upcoming weekend.
