Another round of winter weather is targeting Nebraska. National Weather Service Meteorologist Cathy Zapotocny says, “We have a winter weather advisory in effect across the state of Nebraska. It includes the panhandle, central Nebraska and then parts of east central Nebraska and southeast Nebraska. We are still refining the forecast but we do have 2 to 4 inches moving into east central Nebraska and then the question is how much of that colder, dryer air will influence the track.”
Zapotocny says temperatures will drop into the 20’s overnight and remain in that range throughout Friday. There will also be a brisk north wind and wind chill temperatures will be in the single digits and teens. Wind gusts of up to 35 mph are expected.
Travelers should prepare for snow covered roads and limited visibilities.
Zapotocny says we could see record cold temperatures Saturday morning but it will warm into the 30’s during the day. There is another round of snow possible on Sunday. Zapotocny says, “This is looking to be a little bit warmer of a system so even though the precipitation will start out as snow but it is expected to switch over to rain on the back side of it as we get some warmer temperatures in there. So, once again we will have snow in the forecast as we head into Sunday.”
Monday and Tuesday should be dry and Zapotocny says by Wednesday we should see temperatures in the 50’s and maybe into the 70’s near the Kansas border.
