Strong upper level low pressure moved from northeast Colorado east along the Kansas and Nebraska border Tuesday night, spreading widespread rain, locally heavy, and some snow in south central Nebraska and north central Kansas. There were several locations which reported over one inch of rain. As the heaviest rain fell overnight, the atmosphere cooled enough for the rain to change to snow in some spots, especially from around Kearney south to Minden and Campbell Nebraska. Locally up to 1 inch of slushy snow accumulated in those areas by morning (April 7th). A mixture of rain and snow fell at many locations around sunrise Wednesday just when some of the heaviest precipitation fell.
