OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Two more rounds of snow arrive Sunday and Monday, triggering First Alert Days. Arctic air continues to settle into the region, sticking with us through the extended forecast.

After 2 to 3 inches of snow fell in the Metro Saturday morning (higher amounts southwest), clouds began to break up during the evening. This allowed most spots to dip below-zero before midnight, before clouds moved back into the region.

Snow will spread from west to east during the morning hours Sunday, with the main round wrapping up again by Noon/1PM. However, an additional clipper will dive in during the afternoon and early evening hours, as temperatures remain in the single digits.

With very cold air in place, our snow ratios will be HIGH. This means, it won’t take nearly as much moisture as “normal” to create higher amounts of fluffy snow. 2 to 4 inches look possible in Omaha, with higher amounts to the west/southwest.

Our third First Alert Day in a row arrives Monday. This round looks to be the weakest, but yet another 1 to 2 inches of fluffy snow is possible Sunday night and Monday morning. The AM commute will be impacted, but conditions should improve for the afternoon and evening. Highs will once again be in the single digits, with temperatures dropping as low as -10° Monday night!

Another snowy start Monday!
