HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Wintry weather is ongoing this morning as drizzle and freezing drizzle continue. While not a lot of freezing drizzle, it has been enough to create slick roads and sidewalks, causing issues to travelers. Meanwhile, farther north and west, there has been snow overnight and some continues this morning. The drizzle has been transitioning to snow from northwest to southeast. The snow will continue to push east through the morning, then come to an end from west to east during the afternoon. Sunshine will come out for the western half of the area through the afternoon. In the end, the highest snow totals will end up being in northern portions of the area where up to 2 inches and possibly a bit more will be possible. Farther southeast from around the Tri-Cities and southeastward totals of an inch or less are likely. The other rough part of the day is the cold and the wind. Northerly winds of 15 to 30+ mph will continue with gusts at times over 40 mph. Those winds will turn more northwesterly through the day. Temperatures will mostly be in the 20s with some lower 30s in southeast Nebraska, but really won’t warm up much this afternoon. Those that get some sunshine might bump up a little.

Look for clearing skies tonight as temperatures drop to between the mid 0s and the mid 10s. Many could see wind chill values near or below zero by Wednesday morning. Winds will be a bit lighter out of the west by tomorrow morning. There could be some fog in Southwest Nebraska early tomorrow morning. Wednesday will be a sunny day as it remains on the chilly side. Highs will range from around 30° northeast to around 40° southwest. There may be a few passing clouds Wednesday night, but it won’t be quite as cold as winds start to pick up out of the south southeast. Look for lows in the mid 10s to the mid 20s.

Temperatures will be milder Thursday and Friday, although winds will be a bit on the blustery side. Highs on Thursday with plenty of sunshine will get into the mid 40s northeast to the upper 50s southwest. Highs on Friday will range from the mid 40s north to the upper 60s south. The reason for a wider range in temperatures is that a cold front will be sagging south later in the day. Saturday will be a chillier day with partly sunny skies. Highs will range from the mid 30s northeast to the mid 40s southwest. Sunday will be a bit nicer, but breezy. Highs will range from the mid 40s to the mid 50s southwest. After Sunday, another shot of colder air will arrive with the next chance of precipitation Monday and Tuesday. This could potentially be rain, snow, or both.
