Mild First Half of the Week

Winter Begins Thursday

After some morning fog, conditions continue to improve today with highs reach the low 50s. A few clouds will be passing through from time to time, but we stay mostly sunny through the morning and into early afternoon. Temps drop back into the low 30s tonight, not quite as cold as we started off this morning.

A weak cold front will knock us back a few degrees for Tuesday and Wednesday, near 50 degrees both days, but another front hanging back to the north will keep the coldest air from making it down here.

Winter officially starts Thursday, just in time for a strong cold front to bring in a blast of arctic air. It looks like the cold front will hit later than first expected, which could give us time to warm into the 40s in the afternoon. With the cold air delayed, we may see some rain in the afternoon before switching to snow late Thursday. If this timing holds, it would probably keep us under an inch of snow Thursday and Friday in Omaha. Higher amounts would be possible further north.

Temperatures will stay below average Friday and over the weekend with another chance for snow now Saturday and Sunday. With more moisture to work with, this round has the potential to bring higher snow totals than the first snow potential.
