WEDNESDAY EVENING, FEBRUARY 19
As drier air settles south, the snow will be ending from north to south through the evening. Impressive snow totals were reported in the Sandhills to the north of North Platte with 10" in Hooker County, south west of Mullen...8 " in Logan County near Tryon...North Platte picked up 4.1" total.
Overnight tonight, high pressure settles into the region which will lead to clear skies. This, plus our new snowpack will mean very cold temperatures overnight with overnight lows cooling to the single digits. Morning wind chills may be sub-zero for some.
Snowfall from today won't last for long as a warming trend takes over for the remainder of the week and into the weekend. Expect quieter, calmer weather with highs by the weekend into the 40s, 50s, and even low 60s. Our next weather maker moves into the region by the end of the weekend with chances for rain and some snow returning to the forecast.
