Warmer weekend temperatures are expected, but weather officials are closely monitoring what’s expected to follow.
The Omaha metro will get a late January thaw over the weekend. Temperatures are expected in the 50s on Friday and Saturday. Expect fog as the snow melts and creates more moisture in the air.
“It’s late Monday, more so Monday night-Tuesday, that the snow and the wind chances really pick up, possible major winter storm there,” said KMTV’s Meteorologist Ryan McPike on Wednesday morning. “Obviously, it is way too early to talk about amounts, but somebody is probably going to get hit pretty hard with that early next week, somewhere in the central part of the country. So stay tuned, again though, that is several days away.”
On Tuesday, the National Weather Service Omaha office posted about the possible storm on Twitter.
“Let’s address the elephant. Yes, there’s a storm developing next week, “somewhere” on the plains. But, lots of things can change in seven days!”
