HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Some snow has already fallen this morning for areas west of, southwest of, and now northwest of the Tri-Cities. Snow totals have been anywhere from trace amounts to as much as two inches. While much of the snow has shifted to our southwest over Western Kansas and Eastern Colorado, one final round of snow is push south from North Central Nebraska. The bulk of this snow is falling west of Highway 183, and may bring an additional inch or so of snow to those areas. Some very light snow may accumulate just east of Highway 183 with a dusting toward the Tri-Cities later in the morning or early afternoon. Thankfully, winds will not be terribly strong today, so not much blowing snow is expected. That will also be nice not to deal with on an already cold day. High temperatures later today will mostly top out in the low to mid 20s. There may be some upper 20s to the west. If you’re looking for some sun, your chances will be better the farther northeast you go in our area.

Snow will clear out of our area by the mid to late afternoon. Some clouds may remain stubborn overnight, so we could see anything from mostly clear skies to mostly cloudy skies depending on where you live. A warm front will traverse across the state overnight. With that warm front moving through, winds will begin to pick up out of the southwest by the early morning. Actual lows tonight will dip back into the single digits for much of Central and Eastern Nebraska with some 10s to the west and southwest. These temperatures may come up a few degrees as the winds pick up, but the wind chill will get colder by sunrise.

Some early clouds will give way to at least partial clearing on Wednesday. Winds will be strong out of the southwest at 15 to 25 mph. Highs will reach the upper 30s and lower 40s, but it will feel a bit colder thanks to those blustery winds. We’ll see clouds increase Wednesday night as a weak cold front moves through. Lows will be in the 20s. That front will bring a slight cool-down on Thursday and winds will be blustery out of the northwest at 15 to 25 mph. We’ll also see partly to mostly cloudy skies. Look for highs on Thursday in the mid to upper 30s with some lower 40s to the southeast.

Quiet and milder weather will arrive for the Friday through Monday time frame with mostly sunny skies. Both Friday and Saturday may be a little breezy. Highs on Friday will mostly be in the mid to upper 40s. Highs on Saturday will mostly get to the low to mid 50s with a few even breaking into the upper 50s. Sunday will be just a little cooler in the mid 40s to mid 50s with the coolest temperatures in the east. Monday will mostly be in the low to mid 50s. The next shot of colder air will move in Tuesday into Wednesday. Along with this, one or two rounds of wintry weather may make its return to the area for the middle and end of next week.
