Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 2015
Another winter storm is heading our way and, very similar to Thanksgiving, this one will likely pack some more freezing rain. An upper level low which has been sitting over the Nevada/Utah area will pack up and move over the plains Sunday night and into Monday. Sunday highs will be in the lower 30s for many under mostly cloudy skies. By the afternoon a few light rain showers will pop up for Lincoln and the surrounding area, with light snow the preferred precip near Ord when it arrives. But that's all just child's play compared to what the overnight hours into Monday have in store. Snow is expected to fill in for Western and Central Nebraska heading into the early morning hours of Monday... with temps too warm in Southeast Nebrasak, rain will be in store. A line from Omaha, through Lincoln and down near the Hebron area will be the transition line between rain and snow once again... this means a couple tenths of an inch of ice will be possible throughout the day along with any snow fall that happens to make it along that line, likely 1" to 3" in general. The northeast corner of the state will get the highest amounts of snow in the state... nearing 4" to 8" with more in localized spots and even higher crossing over the South Dakota border. North Platte area will see a healthy 3" to 6" of snow.
On the back end of this next system things are quiet. The sun comes back out by mid week and highs get up to the 40s to end off the work week.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a 20% chance of freezing rain, sleet or snow. Lows in the upper teens to low 20s. Northeast winds at 5 to 10 mph.
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.
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.
