SATURDAY-SUNDAY JANUARY 19-20, 2019
Slick conditions will continue overnight with flurries or very light freezing drizzle possible into very early Saturday morning. Heavier bands of snow are possible in the extreme southeast corner of the state. North winds 15 to 30 mph will drive wind chill values to -5 to -12 degrees.
Saturday will start out breezy with early morning winds capable of gusting to 30 mph...and some flurries can't be ruled out. It doesn't appear we'll see the worst of the cold with the arctic high pressure core staying north and east of Nebraska but morning temperatures will begin in the lower teens and never make it to the 20s in the eastern part of the state. Central and western areas will see the thermometer climb into mid 20s to mid 30s, respectively as the skies clear from west to east.
The rest of the weekend will see variable cloudiness with slightly warmer temperatures during the day on Sunday. Another system will roll in on Martin Luther King Day with snow coverage increasing from Northern Nebraska through the southeast part of the state. There is a chance of freezing drizzle in the afternoon and evening, with snow arriving late Monday night and continuing through Tuesday morning. Widespread heavy snow is not anticipated, but some decent amounts could occur with the more prolific bands.
