Western NE will only receive a glancing blow next week with arctic air expected to move into the Upper Midwest and the Northern Plains starting on Monday. Temperatures across parts of eastern ND and western MN are forecast to be 20 °F or more colder than normal! Our highs will be the coldest on Tuesday and will be 5-15 °F below seasonable temperatures. This will also coincide with largely dry conditions Monday through Thursday.
Snow chances increase behind a strong cold front Sunday evening. Light accumulations are possible for the northern Sandhills. Wind chills also drop to near or below zero Monday morning.
Clouds slowly give way to sunshine today as highs range from the mid 30s in the northern Sandhills to the mid 40s far southwest Nebraska. Southwest winds will have a slight breeze up to 20 mph in the afternoon.
The weekend will be fairly mild for southwest Nebraska, but winter returns for the start of the new workweek. Light snow is possible for the Sandhills late Sunday into early Monday.
