Chance of snow increasing Wednesday evening
Nebraska was nestled between storm systems Wednesday morning. While Tuesday’s rain/snow has since disappeared, more precipitation is on the way. For most of Wednesday, southeast Nebraska looks dry. It will be cloudy and windy, with an afternoon high around 30 degrees.
However, the chances of snow will increase Wednesday night. Snow will arrive in southwestern Nebraska around lunchtime and south central Nebraska in the mid to late afternoon. Some snow showers can’t be ruled out in Lincoln during the evening commute, but overall the chances increase during the evening.
Chances of snow will be at their best in Lincoln Wednesday night and early Thursday. Snow will clear the area Thursday morning. In fact, we could see mostly sunny skies by the end of Thursday.
The line between who sees a lot of snow and little snow will probably be sharp. The highest snow totals will be in southern Nebraska. We’re keeping Lincoln in the 2″-4″ range for now, but the totals should be a little higher in the south and significantly lower in the north. Unfortunately, Lincoln will likely be somewhere close to the cutoff zone.
The weather will calm down as we head into the weekend. Temperatures will also gradually rise. The highs could be stuck in the upper 30s on Friday, but by the weekend we should see temperatures back into the 40s to 50s.
