We stay well above average overnight, only cooling into the low 30s, but many of us will be back to the mid 30s by the Thursday morning commute.

Thursday brings a few more clouds, and we start to cool off. Highs will be in the mid 40s, which is still more than 10 degrees above average.

Friday starts dry, but accumulating snow will move in later in the day. Late morning, some light rain and snow will start to move in from the north, expanding farther south into the early afternoon. We will quickly see a full change to snow, with heavy snow at times Friday night and into the overnight hours. The snow then tapers off Saturday morning.

Snow totals will be highest northeast of the Omaha metro, where cities like Atlantic and Denison will see 5-8 inches. Cities from Wayne, down into Omaha, and stretching into northwest Missouri can expect 2-5 inches. Totals farther west and south in areas like Columbus and Lincoln will be around 1-2 inches. Expect updates to the snow forecast as we get closer to Friday.

It will be breezy at times as the snow falls, so expect reduced visibility at times for drivers along with snow-covered roads.

We stay breezy Saturday as colder air blows in. Highs will be in the mid 20s with mostly cloudy skies.

We warm back into the mid 30s Sunday with a little more sunshine. We'll stay in the mid 30s for the MLK holiday, and then make a run for the low 40s on Tuesday.
