Winter Wonderland Arrives Jan. 31

It took a while for Mother Nature to remember that this is winter, not spring or fall, in Nebraska.  (UPDATE: See winter storm advisory due to blowing snow in effect until 6 p.m. Sunday by clicking here.  Travel is not advised.)

After nearly two weeks with high temperatures paying visits to the 50s or 60s, the Dorchester area has been graced with a slushy winter wonderland on the last day of January.

The forecast is calling for a total of 2-4 inches.  

But at 9 p.m., the Times estimates there was already close to 4 inches on the ground.  Totals were slightly less on the concrete, which had still retained some of the heat from the week's warmth.

With 48 days left until spring's arrival, it appears winter is going to be sticking around for a while.  

Sunday's forecast calls for high of 25 degrees, with the snow tapering off.  But careful Sunday night and Monday morning, since clear and frigid conditions will bring extreme cold and dangerous temperatures.  Look for a low of -7 Sunday night and Monday morning.

More snow is predicted Wednesday.  We won't see temperatures above 40 until Friday or Saturday.
