Snow Tapers Off Today, Few Snow Showers Possible Wednesday

Todd Simcox

From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

Lingering light snow will taper off from north to south this morning into the early afternoon as low pressure pulls away from the region. Skies will remain cloudy with scattered snow showers possible through the remainder of the day. Additional accumulations today will range from 1”-3” mainly from Lincoln to Greenville northward with only 1” or less possible elsewhere. Temperatures will be seasonable today with highs in the 20s. Northerly winds will remain breezy but not quite as gusty as they were yesterday so things should feel a bit better overall today. Any lingering snow showers will taper off tonight with skies remaining cloudy through the nighttime. Temperatures will range from the mid-single numbers to mid-teens for overnight lows.

We’re going to be stuck under an upper level trough over the next few days. Weak disturbances moving through the trough will cross the area from time to time keeping us under plenty of clouds and the chance for some scattered snow showers over the next few days. Wednesday will feature mostly cloudy skies with a few snow showers possible mainly over western and northwestern parts of the state. Temperatures on Wednesday will reach the mid-20s to mid-30s for highs. On Thursday, it looks like we’ll see a better chance for snow showers with some steadier light snow possible closer to the coast. Temperatures on Thursday will be in the 20s to near 30°. Arctic air will begin to pour into the region on Friday with variably cloudy skies expected and temperatures only climbing to the upper single numbers to mid-teens elsewhere. Even colder weather will move in this weekend, the coldest air we have seen this season with highs mainly in the single numbers Saturday and Sunday.

Today: Mostly cloudy. Periods of light snow this morning will taper to snow showers from south to north. Highs between 20°-28°. North wind around 10 MPH.

Tonight: Lingering snow showers ending then mostly cloudy. Cold with lows between 5°-15°. Light and variable wind.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with scattered snow showers mainly over northern and western areas. Highs between 25°-35°. Light and variable wind.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy with snow showers likely. Highs in the 20s to near 30°.

Friday: Variably cloudy with a few afternoon snow showers possible. Much colder with highs in the upper single numbers to mid-teens.

Saturday: Variably cloudy and frigid with scattered snow showers. Highs in single numbers to low teens.
