NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb.(KNEP)- After a windy, sunny and mild weekend, things have changed for the colder and wetter here across the area Monday with rain and snow in the headlines for our Monday.

During the morning Monday, temperatures were in the 30s with snowfall in the Nebraska Panhandle and starting to filter into the northern portions of Greater Nebraska and will continue to spread into more of Greater Nebraska overtime. Otherwise, very cold rain has impacted the rest of the area Monday morning with some being moderate to heavy at times. This is due to an area of low pressure to our south and area of high pressure to our north, allowing for the moisture to enter the area.

With this snowfall continuing to increase, this has triggered the National Weather Service to issue a Winter Weather Advisory in the western portions of the Panhandle until 3 p.m. MDT Monday and portions of Greater Nebraska until 6 p.m. CDT. Snowfall amounts could be between 1 to 3 inches and 2 to 4 inches of snow with locally higher amounts. We will keep you posted on any changes that are made with these alerts throughout the day.
