The northwestern edge of a strong mid level low pressure system moving across the Central Plains will bring rain and snow to south central Nebraska and north central Kansas tonight into Friday night.
As temperatures cool tonight, rain is expected to mix with and change to snow. Some light snow accumulations are possible, especially on grassy surfaces. Locations north of a line from Loup City to York may see snowfall up to 1 to 2 inches. Snowfall of a half inch or less is expected farther south. Precipitation chances continue on Friday, with the snow changing back over to rain. Any snow that falls tonight should melt on Friday.
Snow is possible again Friday night, before the system begins to depart the Plains early Saturday. Little if any snow accumulation is expected Friday night.
Winds will be strong from the northwest through Friday with wind speeds of 20 to 30 mph and gusts near 40 mph. The combination of the strong winds and snow may reduce visibilites below a mile at times, especially overnight.
