Snow ending on Thursday afternoon
Snow has continued to spread east early Thursday, making for treacherous road conditions across the area. Snow will fall through much of the morning commute in the southeast corner of the state. Breezy winds will also produce blowing snow in some spots. Travel will be difficult on Thursday morning.
Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for much of Thursday in the pink-shaded areas. Most accumulation will occur in the warning area. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect farther north/west, where less accumulation will occur.
Snow chances remain through the morning hours, before tapering off around lunchtime in Lincoln. For areas farther west, snow will stop sooner. Snow will come to an end entirely on Thursday afternoon.
In fact, skies may turn mostly sunny by the end of the day. Temperatures won’t warm all too much either, we’re looking at upper-20s and low-30s for highs across the area.
As we head into the weekend, the weather gets a little bit more inviting. While morning lows on Friday should be in the single digits, afternoon temperatures should rise into the upper-30s. By the weekend, air temperatures rise into the 40s and perhaps near 50° in some areas. After Thursday morning, we expect no precipitation through the weekend.
