Rain & Snow Mix this Weekend

Frigid air over the next few nights
Posted at 7:13 AM, Oct 26, 2023

A cold front will move through the region overnight, leading to colder temperatures in the mid 30s by Friday morning.

The sunshine returns Friday afternoon, but it will be windy and cold with highs in the lower to mid 40s.

The first freeze of the season in Omaha will be Saturday morning as we fall into the upper 20s.

Late Saturday morning, snow will start to move into northeast Nebraska. By the early afternoon, a wintry mix will expand across more of the region from Omaha and south. Snow will be most common north of the I-80 corridor, more of a mix of rain and snow along I-80 and just south of the I-80 corridor, and mainly rain in far SE Nebraska, NW Missouri, and SW Iowa. As we get colder late in the day, more of this will change to all snow farther south. Light snow showers will continue Saturday evening, coming to an end Saturday night.

The best chance for any snow to stick to the ground will be in northeast Nebraska, with 1-3" possible from Norfolk to Wayne. The rest of the region won't see much accumulation, other than a dusting on the grass. A lot of cities won't see anything stick to the ground very long, but there could be some small areas across the rest of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa with up to an inch. With the recent warm weather, any treated road or parking lot should hold up pretty well.

Any lingering snow showers Saturday night should clear by Sunday morning. Overall, Sunday looks cloudy and cold. Highs will be in the middle 30s, dropping in the lower 20s as skies clear Sunday night.

The sunshine returns Monday, but we stay cold. We start the day in the low 20s and only warm into the low 40s for the afternoon.

We stay cold and sunny for Halloween, in the upper 30s. By trick-or-treat, we will be falling back into the lower 30s.

The stretch of 20s in the morning and 40s in the afternoon continues Wednesday with a lot of sunshine... but we should see some slightly warmer weather by the weekend.
