Sunday Forecast

A few snow showers will be possible on and off for the rest of Sunday, otherwise mostly cloudy skies will remain. A little chilly to end the weekend, too, with highs in the middle 30s and a gusty northwest wind at 10 to 25 mph.

We have a quiet start to the week with mostly sunny skies on Monday and highs in the lower 30s. A bit of a northwest wind will give the air a bite to it. Then, all eyes shift to Tuesday.

Starting as early as before sunrise on Tuesday, some rain, freezing rain and a rain/snow mix will start to move into SE Nebraska. This will make travel very difficult. As much as a tenth of an inch of ice will be possible, so untreated surfaces will be slick.

As Tuesday progresses, there will be a changeover to all snow, generally by noon. Snow will continue into the evening hours with accumulating snow looking likely. 2-4″ in Lincoln looks possible, with 4-7″ further north into NE and north central Nebraska. 1-2″ will be possible further south, near the Kansas/Nebraska border.

Of course, snowfall totals will rely heavily on how much rain and freezing rain we see first, so stay up to date on the latest forecast for the next 24 hours!
