Another winter storm is about to move into the area

HASTINGS, Neb. (Nebraska) – The morning starts windy and cloudy, but during the day the conditions will worsen. Winds will blow from the north between 15 and 25 mph with gusts up to about 35 mph. The snow will begin to drift across southwest Nebraska as the morning wears on. It will spread east through southern Nebraska and northern Kansas in the afternoon. Conditions will go downhill in the afternoon and into the evening. Since this is dry snow and blustery winds, there will be plenty of blowing snow to reduce visibility to a mile or less. This will make the journey quite dangerous. Traveling to areas near and south of Interstate 80 later today or tonight is not recommended. The snow will continue through the night but will begin to subside in our western areas after midnight. It could last until dawn Thursday around the Tri-Cities. From there, it should be done by noon in eastern Nebraska. Snow totals will be highest near and just south of Highway 6 where 4 to 8 inches of snow will be common. I think there are some that go up to about 10 inches. I wouldn’t rule out even a meter of snow in some very isolated places. As you go north to I-80, snowfall totals should decrease pretty quickly. Once you move north of I-80, the amounts will quickly drop to about an inch or less. Little to no snow is expected north of Highway 92.

Temperatures today will remain cool with highs of the upper 10s in the north to the lower 30s in the southeast. Overnight, lows will be mostly in the 10s. For tomorrow, during the day, the skies will clear from the northwest to the southeast. Over the course of the day, the north-westerly winds will also gradually ease. Tomorrow afternoon there should be some melted snow. High temperatures Thursday will hit the upper 20s and the low to mid 30s. With clear skies and lighter winds, Thursday night will be quite chilly with lows of the mid-00s east to mid-50s west.

Better weather is expected over the weekend, but those areas with fresh snow will struggle to warm up any more than those with little or no snow on the ground. There will be a lot of sun. Winds will pick up from the southwest and become breezy between 10 and 20 mph. Highs will hit the upper 30s and low to mid 40s. Saturday will be a bit warmer with less wind with low to mid 40 degrees. Sunday and Monday will be our mildest days. Temperatures will then drop for the remainder of next week as more active weather returns to the area, including an increased chance of snow.
