Some rain/snow chance comes Monday night
Posted at 6:25 PM, Jan 20, 2024

The winds will be strong on Sunday with gusts as high as 30-40 mph. However, this helps to warm us up greatly with highs reaching the upper 20s! A mix of clouds and sun will persist through the day.

Overnight Sunday lows don't drop much below the mid 20s. Some areas of patchy freezing drizzle could form early Monday morning south of I-80, likely staying close to the Kansas border. If we see this, some slick spots could impact the Monday morning commute in southeast NE and northwest MO. Omaha and north will remain dry.

By Monday morning, we rise above freezing! This will be the first time Omaha has risen above freezing since 2 am on January 9, 13 days! Highs reach the mid 30s with some breezy conditions.

By late Monday evening, rain will begin to move in from the south. The rain could transition to a mix before becoming mostly snow by early Tuesday morning. As of now, most of the impacts look to be along and south of I-80. However, the timing and track can change, so stay tuned for further updates.

Much of the wintry weather is gone by Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures could hover just above freezing.

Some more small rain/snow chances come Wednesday and Thursday, but most should stay dry and impacts look minor at this time. Cloud cover remains as temperatures hold in the mid 30s.

By next weekend, temperatures remain in the low to mid 30s. Due to the cooler temperatures and persistent cloud cover, snowmelt should be slow enough to where flooding is not expected to be a concern.
