The calendar may say Spring, but Winter isn’t done just yet
March 25, 2023 - Evening forecast
HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Already seeing rain and snow move in from the southwest as an upper level low moves across the region. As colder air moves in behind this system, rain will transition over to snow after midnight for south central and eastern spots. Already seeing snow in areas along and south of the interstate west of the Tri-Cities. As for accumulating snow, there will be a very narrow swath along the I-80 corridor from North Platte east over to Omaha of 1-2″. However, there will be higher amounts in western parts of the state where you could potentially pick up 6 to 8 inches in Chase up to Keith counties and just to the west of there. There is also the potential for isolated heavier amounts of 4 to 6 inches along the I-80 corridor. This all depends on where the heavier snow band lines up later tonight. For this reason, there are winter weather advisories for the counties along the interstate until mid morning tomorrow. If you have any travel plans for tomorrow morning along the interstate, you’ll want to be sure to check for the latest weather updates. As for temperatures overnight, lows will dip into the low to mid 20s for most. Low 30s to the southeast.
The snow will taper off from west to east tomorrow morning. Skies will remain mostly cloudy for the afternoon with highs in the mid-upper 30s northwest to the mid 40s southeast. Winds will be slightly breezy out of the north between 10 to 15 mph with occasional gusts to around 20 mph. Sunday night will be the slightly colder than tonight as colder air is ushered in on northerly flow at the surface. Skies will be partly with lows in the low 20s across the area.
Another weak system will bring another chance of cold rain and some snow. Monday will also be another chilly day. Highs will mostly be in the upper 30s to the upper 40s. Tuesday will again be a day with highs in the 40s, but there may be more sunshine. We’ll get a bit of a temperature bump on Wednesday, but it won’t last long. Highs on Wednesday will range from the mid 40s north to the lower 60s south. A stronger storm system will push into the region Thursday and Friday which may bring a chance of rain, thunderstorms, and snow. It will also get chillier again for a couple of days. There are hints of another warm-up for the first weekend of April.
