Thanks to clouds and a NW breeze, temperatures have been about twenty degrees below normal, in the 30s. We’ve had a few remaining snow showers today, with little or no additional accumulations to add to yesterday’s significant snowfall totals.
Tonight skies will become partly cloudy, with winds diminishing to 5-15 mph. It will be a cool night, with lows in the low 20s.
Tomorrow will be mostly sunny, and we should start to melt some of that snow. Highs will be in the upper 30s, with a northwest breeze 5-15 mph, still about twenty degrees below normal. Sunday should be a little warmer, in the upper 30s to low 40s.
Temperatures should warm up to start next week. We should be in the 40s to low 50s across KELOLAND on Monday, though we could have some rain showers in the west and north. Tuesday through Thursday we should be only a little warmer, with highs in the mid 40s to mid 50s. We are also watching a storm system that looks to come through Nebraska, perhaps scraping the southern half of KELOLAND. A few things about this system: 1) It is not as strong as the storm we just had, 2) It looks like more rain than snow, and 3) there are huge forecast model differences, which is typical following big storm systems like the one we just had. Amateur weather enthusiasts have tried to scare everybody with clickbait about another blizzard, but the data does not support that.
One thing that does look likely is that temperatures will remain below normal next week, with some improvement in temperatures for Easter Weekend.
