Spring tonight, winter tomorrow
Storms will be possible tonight, with most of the activity staying in central and NE Nebraska. After that storm chance moves out, colder air moves back in. That will allow for parts of northern Nebraska to see some snowfall. We’ll quiet down as we head into the weekend with temperatures fluctuating quite a bit.
Our first weather concern of the night is the chance for severe weather. Storms will start to form in central Nebraska around 7-8pm, then drift northeast through the night. Hail will be the main concern.
Because of that risk for severe storms tonight, a Marginal Risk is in place from North Platte to Sioux City and up into SE South Dakota, NW Iowa, and SW Minnesota.
After the storms move through tonight, snow will start to move into northern Nebraska Friday morning and eventually push through the state by Friday night.
Most of the snow will be in north central and NW Nebraska, but some light snow may make it as far south as I80.
Because of the heavier snow potential in northern Nebraska (and wind!), a Winter Weather Advisory is in place through Friday.
The wind is going to be an issue Thursday night through Friday. Wind gusts will be in the 40 to 50 mph range.
