TRACKING WEATHER SYSTEM FOR SECOND HALF OF WEEKEND

We’ve been keeping an eye on a weather system that could impact southeast Nebraska Sunday.  Temperatures will be cool – highs in the 30°s – and moisture is projected to move in to the area.  Initially, the moisture will fall in the form of rain.  As temperatures start to cool throughout the atmospheric column the rain will begin to change over to snow.  There still remains some question as to what temperatures will be like between 3,000 and 5,000 feet above the ground.  Also, it remains to be seen how much moisture there will be to work with as the colder air infiltrates the area.  However, at this time it does appear that a shovel-able snow is possible Sunday night in to Monday morning.  Stay tuned…
