LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Some areas of light snow and flurries will be possible as we head through Friday evening across parts of eastern Nebraska. Any snow accumulations would remain very light with perhaps a trace to 0.5″ at most possible. In Lincoln, measurable snow isn’t likely and the forecast for tonight just includes some flurries as we head into Friday evening. Clouds should then clear out overnight tonight with mostly sunny skies as we start Saturday. A quick moving clipper system will glance the area into Saturday afternoon and evening, but likely just bringing an increase of cloud cover to the area with any snow remaining to our north and east.
