Decreasing clouds Wednesday, but a cool
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb (KNEP)- A surface low in Kansas will track north along a cold front keeping rain chances into early Wednesday for the southern part of the Greater Nebraska area, while the Northwest Sandhills back through the Pine Ridge areas could see accumulating snow, as the upper level component with this system pushes out of Wyoming. Winter Weather Advisory will be effective for the Northern Panhandle including the Chadron area into Wednesday morning where low visibility and slick roads could be an issue.
Precipitation could linger into the early morning hours of Wednesday in the form of snow in the far west, to the possibility of a mix of rain and snow in the Northern Sandhills with slight chances as far south as the I-80 corridor. Clouds will clear from west to east Wednesday afternoon as the storm pushes into Iowa with the rain relegated to the far eastern part of the state. It will be a windy day in the wake of the storm, as gusts could climb to as much as 50 mph. Highs on Wednesday will be in the 50s but a brief spike in temperatures is expected Thursday as readings climb into the upper 60s.
