Widespread Arctic Air And Possible Winter System

Widespread Arctic Air And Possible Winter System
February 5th, 2021 | National Weather Service

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for south central Nebraska and
portions of north central Kansas.


The first of two rounds of snow this weekend will begin to affect
the area tonight. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for
areas along and north of a line from Lexington to Red Cloud to
Hebron, beginning at 10pm.

Saturday through Thursday.

The first round of snow will come to an end by noon on Saturday.
Total snow accumulations of 3 to 5 inches are expected across the
Winter Weather Advisory area, with locally higher amounts
possible. There remains some uncertainty as to the exact location
of the heaviest snow, so stay tuned for additional forecast
updates. Elsewhere, snow amounts should remain less than 2 inches
through Saturday morning.

The next round of snow arrives Saturday night and continues into
at least Sunday morning. The forecast calls for around 1 to 3
inches of new snow over roughly the same areas that receive snow
from round one. Again, stay tuned for additional forecast
adjustments as the location of heaviest snow could change.

An arctic airmass will bring frigid temperatures to our area over
the weekend and next week. Overnight and morning wind chills may
dip as low as -15 to -30 degrees for large portions of the
forecast area each and every day next week.
