NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - After a stretch of unseasonably warm conditions earlier in the week...”normal” winter weather has returned to the area...

A storm system sliding across the Plains brought colder air and areas of light snow to some locations on Friday...with more significant snow falling over parts of Central and Eastern Nebraska. Some flurries or light snow showers will be possible Friday evening as this weather-maker pushes east...but little-or-no snow accumulations are expected. An upper-level disturbance will drop into the Central Rockies on Saturday...eventually spilling out onto the Southern Plains...but this system should have little impact on our local area but we’ll keep an eye on it. Heading into next week another upper-level low arrives on Tuesday and that will bring us a chance for accumulating snow...but otherwise the rest of the week looks dry with temperatures warming a bit for the Wednesday-thru-Friday period.

The North Platte forecast beginning with Friday night calls for a 50% chance of light snow...with lows in the lower 20s and a north wind of 8 to 18 mph. Saturday should be partly-to-mostly cloudy and seasonably cool with a high in the middle 30s and a northeast wind of 5 to 15 mph. On Sunday expect mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 30s along with northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph.
