OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - We saw partly sunny skies at times today helping temperatures to warm up a bit more than the past few days. Afternoon temperatures in the upper 20s to around 30. Winds have been rather gusty as well, coming in out of the southeast at 25 to 30mph at times, cutting into those warmer temperatures just a bit. Winds will calm down just a bit this evening, but will remain on the breezy side overnight.
Clouds will be back on the increase this evening. We should be dry for most of the evening and early overnight hours. Temperatures will fall into the lower 20s, but remain steady as clouds thicken up. After midnight snow will be increasingly likely, moving in from west to east. There could be a few burst of heavier snow between 3am and 9am across the area. Any heavy snow will be brief, and snow should generally wind down by Noon with 1 to 3 inches of snow across most of the area. The heaviest amounts are most likely just to the north and northeast of the metro where a few spots could pick up as much as 4 inches of snow. Once snow moves out, mostly clouds skies will continue through the rest of the the day with highs around 30.
Another storm system will begin to move into the area on Monday as our active pattern continues. We may see precipitation break out initially as a bit of a wintry mix Monday afternoon and evening, with some plain rain possible south of the metro. By the late evening hours, temperatures will fall enough fore precipitation to change over to snow. That snow will likely continue overnight into Tuesday morning, and there could be some pockets of heavy snow. Amounts are yet to be determined, but accumulating snow is looking likely, especially from the metro east into Iowa. Snow will come to an end Tuesday, and we may actually see sunshine return by Tuesday afternoon. Generally cold and quiet conditions expected through Thursday morning before we see yet another chance for light snow Thursday evening into Friday morning.
