The forecast remains on track heading into the overnight hours. Areal coverage of rain is reemerging to the south of Omaha and will push into the city a little after midnight. Temperatures are still in the lower 40s but the cold air is evident northwest of the Metro with several reporting stations near the freezing mark.
Cooler air will migrate eastward slowly changing rain to snow from Columbus to Norfolk this evening. Omaha will likely not see that transition until roughly 5 am, with snow alternately mixing with showers until about 11 am before lifting out of the area. The cloud cover will begin to thin out in the afternoon.
Little accumulation is expected in the Metro. From Columbus to Norfolk 2-4" is possible with an inch or less from Stanton to Schuyler southward. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Norfolk area.
Outside of another round of showers rolling into the area late Tuesday night into Wednesday, the rest of the week looks fabulous. Sunshine makes a return visit on Thursday, then takes up residence through the weekend. Temperatures will respond in kind pushing into the 70s.
