For the most part Nebraska is missing most of a major snowstorm that is targeting much of the Midwest. National Weather Service Meteorologist Dave Fobert says some areas of the state received a dusting of snow this morning but round two is on the way.
Fobert says we will get a bit of a break this afternoon with another round spreading in from the west. That should start late afternoon and continue into the overnight hours. The system will then drop south.
Fobert says, “The primary time frame for accumulating snow tonight will probably be between six and midnight in eastern Nebraska. A little earlier if you go out to the west.”
From Albion north, snow accumulations will amount to an inch or two. From there south to Lincoln one to three inches could fall with higher amounts in certain pockets west of the Omaha metro area. Fobert says the snow will eventually move south Saturday afternoon into the evening hours and areas there can expect up to three inches as well.
Now the good news. A warm-up is on the way. It will be in the upper 20’s Monday and Tuesday but could hit 40-degrees by Wednesday.
