ALERT: Late March Snowfall Could Bring Accumulation
The calendar tells us it's spring. But this is Nebraska, so despite today's mid-70s on the thermometer, we could find ourselves shoveling snow in a matter of hours.
Snowfalls could exceed 8" in central and northeastern Nebraska.
According to our friends at 10/11 News in Lincoln, today's (Tuesday's) highs will be well above average, but by tonight and Wednesday, showers and thunderstorms will be possible. Precipitation will be possible through much of the day Wednesday, as temperatures will fall during the day. Rain is expected first before changing to snow from west to east across the state during the day and into the evening. Windy conditions are likely so that means blowing snow could be possible Wednesday afternoon and night. It is still a bit too early to tell exact snowfall amounts, but light to moderate snowfall accumulation is possible.
Some lingering snow possible early Thursday, then becoming partly cloudy with highs in the upper 30s to low 40s and breezy.
Another system could move through the area late Friday into Saturday. Once again, rain and snow will be possible. Some small chances of rain and snow could linger into Sunday and next Monday as well.
