Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 2015
I am tracking another winter storm that is expected to pack a punch late Sunday Night into Monday. As this system inches towards the state, Southeastern and Central Nebraska can expect a chance for light freezing rain and snow this afternoon. Expect a little range in temperatures today. Highs are expected to reach in the lower 30s. With a forecast high of 33° in Lincoln today.
Tonight, especially the overnight hours, snow fall totals are expected to reach up to 3 inches with the possibility for ice accumulations as much as a tenth to a quarter of an inch for Central and Southeastern Nebraska. Higher amounts are expected to be confined towards the Northeast corner of the state. Lincoln going south can expect a mix of snow and freezing rain mix nonetheless.
By Late Monday, this system is expected to continue on the track towards the northeast. We can rule out light snow to be wrapped around this system Tuesday, nonetheless, those stubborn clouds will begin to move northeastward as well by Tuesday.
Temperatures will soon warm up by the end of the week to the 40s as the sunshine returns.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain, freezing rain, sleet or snow. Highs in the low to mid 30s. East-northeast winds at 5 to 15 mph. Rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow will become likely Sunday night. Some snow and ice accumulations possible.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a 60% chance of freezing rain, sleet or snow. Lows will cool to the upper 20s. Northeast winds at 5 to 10 mph.
MONDAY: Mostly cloudy with an 80% chance for a wintry mix. Up to a quarter of an inch of ice possible alongside a couple inches of snow accumulation. Highs in the lower to middle 30s. Northeast wind 10 to 20 mph.
