Winter Makes a Return to Parts of the Area

A potent early spring upper-level low pressure system lifting east from New Mexico across Oklahoma and northern Texas will only have a limited impact on the weather in south central Nebraska and north central Kansas through tonight. While parts of southwest and south central Kansas will receive over 12" of snow, snow amounts in north central Kansas will remain under 2 inches. A sharp north/south gradient will set up, with most of the accumulating snow likely south of U.S. Highway 24, where 1 to 2 inches of snow may fall. No accumulating snow is expected in south central Nebraska.

  • Nearly all of the snow will fall across north central Kansas, especially south of U.S. Highway 24. Gusty winds will cause poor visibility at times across Rooks, Osborne, and Mitchell counties. 
  •  The graphics below highlight the primary areas for snowfall, and also specific forecast snow amounts across south central Nebraska and north central Kansas.
