Clearing skies and falling temperatures 2/4/2021

Snow bands will continue to push through southeast Nebraska through the morning hours thanks to an early morning cold front. Visibility will be reduced below a mile for some parts of the area thanks to high wind gusts up to 40 mph combined with the falling snow. Snow should begin to taper off by the morning commute, but roads will likely be slick. Clouds will start to pull apart as we head into the afternoon and evening. We could see mostly sunny skies by the evening across the area. Temperatures unfortunately will drop throughout the day as colder air sinks southward into the area. Overnight lows will drop down to the teens and light snow is back in the forecast through Monday with arctic air dropping overnight lows below zero next week.

  • TODAY: Falling temperatures and clearing skies. By the late afternoon we could see mostly sunny skies and wind gusts still around 40 mph. HIGH: 31 (start of the day)
  • FRIDAY: Mostly cloudy skies with highs in the low 30s. HIGH: 32
  • SATURDAY: Light snow showers with cold highs in the teens. HIGH: 17
  • SUNDAY: Even colder with bitter cold temps in the low teens and scattered snow showers. HIGH: 10
  • MONDAY: Morning lows below zero with highs in the single digits with wind chill values well below zero during the day. HIGH: 7
