We've made it through our last frigid morning for this week and start to warm up this afternoon! More clouds move in this afternoon, but strong winds out of the south will be pumping in the warmer air. This will get us into the mid 20s late this afternoon.
Strong winds will continue overnight, getting us even warmer! At the same time, a wintry mess will start to move in. The snow and wintry mix will move in from our west, reaching Omaha roughly around 10 pm. This will be a combination of snow, sleet, and freezing rain. This will continue to be widespread heading into the Wednesday morning commute, making for messy travel into work and school.
Temperatures will start the day in the mid 30s and stay there for the afternoon. This will keep everything as a mess of snow and wintry mix at times the rest of the day. Snow totals will vary depending on how much snow vs. sleet we see, but 1-2 inches will be common for most of the region, including Omaha. Lower totals are expected as you head closer to northeast Nebraska.
Another round of wintry mix and snow will move in Thursday. For now, it looks like we stay in the mid 30s for the afternoon, but a slight change in the forecast one way or the other would impact how much falls as snow. Some of this could linger into Friday morning, with the best chance for that in western Iowa. Stay tuned for updates on this round!
The weekend looks much better! We will be dry with highs in the 30s.
