HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Happy New Year’s Day everyone! I hope everyone is off to a great start here in 2022. The snow held off a little longer than anticipated which made travel after midnight safer. And we didn’t see as much snow as was anticipated which of course is a good thing. Unless you are a cross country skier. Could have used a little more then.

Looking at the weather alerts. you can see the winter storm warning area has shrunk as the snow moves out of the region. But we are still left with very cold air mass and some light winds which is why there is a wind chill advisory posted for the entire viewing area. Could see wind chills again tonight and tomorrow morning between -15 and -20 degrees. The reason for the remaining winter storm warning to the east is due to what’s left of the snow which is quickly moving off to the east. As far as the cloud cover goes, we will see clearing from northwest to the southeast this evening and into the overnight. By midnight, we should have clear skies and remain clear through the day tomorrow giving us a sunny day for your Sunday. As far as road conditions go, there are many roads with snow partially covering them, nothing that will keep you from getting from point A to point B, you’ll just want to take it slow when you do encounter those snowy spots on the road and put some distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you.

If you are about to head out this evening in the Tri-cities you’ll want to bundle up as it’s another cold night. Winds have backed off, right now out of the north around 15 mph. The snow has pretty much moved out of the region. What is not going to move out, however, is the wind chills as we will see those values drop down to around -15 degrees overnight, even with a light wind it will feel much colder due to the lows overnight tonight. Looking into the future, the snow moves out completely later this evening. High pressure moves in for Sunday giving us a southerwesterly flow which will help warm us up some tomorrow. Still have the snow cover which will keep daytime highs short of the freezing mark tomorrow as snow has a high albedo and reflects the sunlight really well. As we head into Monday, sunny skies continue and with a southerly flow in place we will see warmer daytime highs on Monday as on Tuesday ahead of our next weather maker. Breezy conditions will be back as well. Overnight tonight lows in the negative single digits. Tomorrow will be warmer than today as we have sothwesterly flow. Cooler temperatures will be to the east where you will have afternoon highs in the 20s, warmer to the west in the upper 30s to low 40s. Back here in the Tri-cities starting off your day in the negative digits under clear skies and light wind from the west southwest around 5 mph. Tomorrow afternoon temps getting into the upper 20s with plenty of sunshine and southwest winds at 5 to 10 mph. And if you are hoping for warmer days, you will get that wish as we head into the beginning of next week. Highs on Monday in the 40s and could see temps touch 50 degrees Tuesday before winter kicks into full gear mid week with another blast of cold air and possibly a little snow to go with it.
