After another day of record temps we get one more spring like day before a return to winter. Highs today will make it into the upper 60’s to near 70 with a NW wind around 15-20 mph. Tonight though a storm system will begin to move into the area and it will impact us greatly the next two days. A winter storm watch will be in effect for norther areas starting late tonight and lasting into Friday afternoon. Snow will begin to move into the north by late tonight but for many of us in central Nebraska our precip will start off as rain tomorrow afternoon and not change over to snow until tomorrow night. There are still some questions, mainly how sharp of a cut off there will be for snow as you head south into central Nebraska. Northern parts of the state look to bear the brunt of this system where heavy snows upwards of over a foot will be possible. Combined with some rather strong north winds and this storm will make for a big headache to the north. Areas around Broken Bow and Ord will be right on the edge of heavier snows. These locations could end up with 3-6 inches while around the Tri-Cities we are looking in the 1-3 inch range and even that may be on the high end. The temperatures will change drastically from what we have been used to as highs on Friday only in the 20’s and 30’s for most. The weekend looks cool but fairly typical for February and by next week temps will try to get back into the 40’s.
