TUESDAY NIGHT, FEBRUARY 19, 2019
Snow will remain likely during the evening and overnight hours tonight. It should wrap up from southwest to northeast during the morning hours Wednesday. Some lingering flurries are possible in the afternoon. Light to moderate snow accumulation is expected in most of Central and Western Nebraska. This area is under a Winter Weather Advisory through the mid-morning hours Wednesday. Moderate to heavy snow accumulation is expected in most of Eastern Nebraska. This area is under a Winter Storm Warning until the mid-morning hours Wednesday.
There should be a bit of break in the chance for precipitation Wednesday night through much of Thursday. By late Thursday, a chance of snow looks to develop in the area.
Precipitation becomes likely again Friday and Saturday. For most of Nebraska, it looks to be mainly snow. With some warm air expected to move into Southeast Nebraska, it looks like the precipitation could begin as snow Thursday night into Friday morning and then change to rain Friday afternoon. The rain would then change to freezing rain or a wintry mix Friday night. That would change again during the day Saturday to rain and freezing rain before changing to snow late Saturday afternoon. Snow would be likely Saturday night into early Sunday morning. It is likely going to be windy Saturday too. Stay tuned to the forecast for Friday and this weekend over the coming days as it could and probably will change. More chances for snow are in the forecast for early next week too.
Temperatures look to be mainly below average the rest of this week into early next week.
