Another cold night is in store, with wind chills hovering sub-zero through the morning. The good thing is, by Monday morning the winds will finally be calming down. It will not be as bad as the arctic air felt Sunday morning, but still a bite in the air to be aware of.

As for everyone else in the state Sunday evening into Monday morning, Wind Chill Advisories still in place across northern Nebraska and southwest Nebraska. Wind chills are expected to drop 20 to 25° below zero. And a Winter Weather Advisory is still in place in the Panhandle for some additional snow of around an inch possible.

But the start of the new week brings more sunshine into the picture. It’ll still be a cold day, far below average, but with mostly sunny skies it’ll be less dreary.

Skycast Tomorrow

Farther into the future, models have slowed down how fast we warm up next week but for now, we are looking to see upper 30s and 40s again heading into the first weekend in February.
