Forecast for Central and Eastern Nebraska


A storm system will move into the Plains which will bring scattered rain showers, possibly mixed with snow into Southern Nebraska. Meanwhile, a cold front will move into Nebraska from the North on Saturday changing the rain to snow by late Saturday afternoon and Saturday night. At this time it looks like Eastern Nebraska could see a trace to 3 of snow by Sunday morning, a trace to 2 inches in Central and Northeast Nebraska.

The main issue with this forecast is the timing of when the colder air arrives to transition the rain to snow. If the cold air moves in much slower, we will see more rain than snow. If the colder air arrives sooner, the rain will change over faster and we will end up with more snow. Accumulation totals will increase as you head into Iowa and Missouri.

The January cold returns for the second half of the weekend. We will also see quite blustery conditions. The snow will taper off by mid-day Sunday but the strong winds will make it a raw day. Temperatures steadily fall all day Sunday and by Sunday night lows will be in the single digits. Monday morning will be very chilly!

A brief warm up is expected on Tuesday with colder temperatures returning on Wednesday and Thursday.
