Light Snow Accumulations and Brisk North Winds Today and Tonight




An upper-level low pressure system lifting across the Rockies onto the Plains will bring snow to our region into tonight.

  • Snow will continue to fall tonight.  Additional snow accumulations are expected to range from a few tenths of an inch north of a line from York to Phillipsburg, to amounts of a half inch to near 2 inches south of that line.

  • North winds will average 15 to 25 mph and gust over 30 mph at times.  Visibilities will be reduced below a mile at times due to the falling snow and winds.

  • The snow will taper off from northwest to southeast this evening and overnight.  The snow will end across the large majority of south central Nebraska by midnight tonight, while lingering across north central Kansas into Saturday morning.  Storm total snowfall accumulations of 1-2 inches are expected, as indicated in the graphic on the left below.
