Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska


More winter precip is on the way for the Capital City... the remaining hours of Sunday will be generally calm with a small chance for light rain or freezing drizzle. Precip chances will increase in the overnight hours ushering in another round for ice and snow possibilities for Southeast Nebraska... Lincoln and Omaha both included in that. A tenth to as much as a quarter of an inch of ice is possible in the early morning hours of Monday before snow mixes in and takes over by late morning, if not sooner. A range of 2 to 4 inches of snow is expected for the Lincoln area... expect to see the higher side of that range if ice accumulations remain low. A Winter Storm Warning is in place for the very reason that although snow totals are forecast on the light side, ice could find its way into the area. Central and Western Nebraska will see an all snow event on Monday, most areas into the west will stay around 1 to 3 inches of snow... while the Tri-Cities will see as much as 3 to 6 inches. Both of those areas are under a Winter Weather Advisory. Highest snow totals across that state are anticipated to be in North-Central and Northeast Nebraska... with a range of 5" to 8" and some heavier snow heading over the border into South Dakota.

Right now the areas of most concern will be in the Southeast where the area will be monitored for where and how much ice accumulates... and the Northeast where the area will be monitored for just how much snow ends up falling. On bright side to this winter storm is that the wind will remain generally calm out of the north at 5 to 15 mph... with a slight breeze for western parts of the state.

With lingering chances for light snow in Northern Nebraska on Tuesday... skies will clear up for the rest of the state as a warm up begins and calm conditions settle in. By the end of the week the sun will be out and seasonable 40s for highs will be expected in Lincoln.

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.

TUESDAY: Skies clearing. 20% chance for snow early in the morning. Highs in the lower to middle 30s. Northwest wind 5 to 15 mph.
