A colder day Wednesday...Flurries possible
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - A storm system tracking through Oklahoma will impact only areas south of Nebraska tonight. Only some variable high level cloudiness will impact the area this evening. There may be some fog, during the evening but mainly staying in Northern Kansas and parts of southeast Nebraska. The winds will pick up overnight mixing out the atmosphere, so fog is not expected to be a problem. Temperatures will be steady in the lower 20s with morning lows dropping to near 20 degrees.
Wednesday a cold front will race southward through the state ushering in some modestly colder air and brisk northwesterly winds gusting to 35 mph. The rush of cold air could squeeze out few flurries behind the front and it will feel blustery, so you’ll want a heavier coat with afternoon highs only reaching the mid 20s.
Chilly temps will only last for the day. Thursday we’ll be back to near the freezing mark with some flurries possible. Friday will be the warmest day of the week climbing into the mid to upper 30s with lower 40s southeast.
Friday night an arctic cold front will approach the region, bringing a chance for late night snow over mainly the northern third of the state. But in the Tri-Cities there is a small chance for a mix of rain, freezing rain or snow as a small wedge of warmer air punches north ahead of the front. Snow will mainly occur over the northern third of the state early on Saturday, but will drop south during the afternoon and evening with another punch of snow moving in from the west overnight into early Sunday. Presently, accumulations are expected to be light. Temperatures will drop like a rock as polar air spreads south. From the upper 20s Saturday afternoon, the thermometer will drop just below zero early Sunday morning with highs Sunday afternoon around 10 degrees! The deep chill will be ongoing with morning lows just below zero and highs in the teens through Tuesday.
