Mother Nature pulled a cruel prank on many Nebraskans as they celebrated Easter Sunday. Nebraska Weather Service Meteorologist Cathy Zapotocny says upwards of 10 inches fell near Crete and Tobias on Sunday while other locations saw sunshine and not even a flurry.
Now it may be northeast Nebraska’s turn for snow. Zapotocny says, “Snow is in the forecast. Some light precipitation is moving to the north today but we do have another front coming through overnight into Tuesday. It would be starting out in some locations as rain or a mix and then switch over to snow. We are looking at that forecast to see exactly where the accumulating snow will be and exactly how much here as the day progresses but definitely we have another weather system that will be producing heavy snow, especially to our northeast. Then it will be a matter of how much snow falls in northeast Nebraska which we’ll be working on today.”
Zapotocny says another front could come through Thursday into Friday but precipitation should be light. There are also some rain and snow changes throughout the week because of fluctuating temperatures but nothing significant.
Temperatures will be in the 30’s today and tomorrow, in the 40’s on Wednesday and maybe into 50 Thursday before cooling down again on Friday.
