Emily’s 6 First Alert Forecast: Quiet Tuesday ahead of Wednesday’s storm
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Clouds linger Monday night along with breezy NW winds keeping us chilly through the night. Tuesday provides a break from the stronger winds and may even offer a few peeks of sunshine in the afternoon once we get past a cloudy start. This will be the best day to run errands and get outside before our next storm arrives Wednesday.
Wednesday is a 6 First Alert Weather Day because of snow that will likely cause significant impacts to the afternoon and evening drive. The snow begins in the morning and will last into early Thursday morning.
Early in the day especially there will be the potential for a wintry mix/ice mainly S of I-80. Eventually all areas change to snow as temperatures drop. The afternoon and evenign bring the heaviest snow and most of the accumulation with only lingering flurries by Thursday morning.
The metro sees 3-6″ with up to 9″ to the N and NW! To the SE totals drop to 1-3″ but there is a higher likelihood for ice. All areas see the potential for rough travel conditions.
Behind this storm we hang onto the cold! Highs fall tot he 20s Thursday and stay there through Saturday.
