Upper disturbance brings snowfall to Western and North Central Nebraska
February 13th, 2012

A short wave trough of low pressure in the mid atmosphere, transitioned across western and central Nebraska overnight. This upper system is expected to weaken later Monday as it moves into the mid Mississippi valley.

Light snowfall resulted around the northern periphery of the low pressure aloft, producing a swath of snowfall ranging from trace amounts to as much as 5 inches near Burwell and Anselmo.

Below is a radar animation depicting the snowfall event as it evolved, along with a brief description of snowfall amounts.
