Today is our transitional day as we move towards warmer temps. We will start the morning very chilly in the single digits but by this afternoon we will climb back into the 30’s. Our Wednesday should end up fairly seasonal for most areas. This warmer air will continue to push into the region as highs on Thursday will be back into the 40’s and 50’s look to be on the way Friday. Some areas Friday could be approaching 60! The warmth will not last as a weak cold front moves in Friday evening and cools us into the 40’s for Saturday. Sunday through Tuesday our highs will be back closer to normal in the 30’s, but the big story will be the potential winter storm on Sunday. I want to stress that right now potential is the key word to use with this storm. Confidence is growing that we will see snow move in on Sunday and will be accompanied by strong winds out of the NW gusting over 30 mph. I believe fully that travel will be very difficult at times on Sunday and that many areas will see accumulating snowfall. There are still big questions as to how much snow we see and who sees the heaviest snow. As of now I would place the heavier band of snow right through central Nebraska up into the northeast part of the state. The key thing to focus on right now is the travel difficulties that are expected Sunday, not how much snow we will see. We will start to discuss snow totals towards the end of the week as our confidence level grows and we see more consistency from our guidance models. Just remember to stay updated with the First Alert Weather Team.
