Relatively mild weather on Wednesday before wintry weather returns on Thursday

LINCOLN, Neb. (COLOGNE) – Another fine December day awaits on Wednesday before we turn our attention to cooler temperatures and a wintry mix of precipitation on Thursday and another round of wintry weather early next week.

Watch for low temperatures Wednesday morning, with morning lows ranging from the low 90s in northern Nebraska to the low 20s in southern parts of the state.

Afternoon temperatures should be good for early December standards, especially in the southern half of the state, where we should see afternoon highs drop into the low 40s to low 50s. Colder air will remain with glass in the northern third of the state, where highs likely won’t get out of the 30s. Find out the temperature reaches 50° in our city of York.

Look for highs in the low 30s to low 50s on Wednesday.

As we move from Wednesday into Thursday, our next winter storm will move across the state. We have a winter weather advisory issued for parts of southern Nebraska from late Wednesday through Thursday afternoon, where areas of light ice and light snow could cause travel problems. We will likely see these advisories extend into parts of north central, northeast and possibly southeast Nebraska tomorrow.

As the system moves through the state, areas of cold rain, snow and possibly ice are expected. Much of our precipitation will depend on temperature profiles around the region, as surface temperatures could be near or slightly above freezing on Thursday.

Freezing rain, sleet and ice is expected across central and eastern Nebraska on Thursday.

Currently, models are picking up parts of north central and northeast Nebraska as favorable places to see some snow. Areas further south toward Yorktown and the Tri-Cities and southeast Nebraska could see light frost as well as light snow accumulations. That all being said, it will be difficult to predict as it will depend so much on the temperatures as mentioned earlier.

The broad forecast gives us a few dry days with seasonable temperatures on Friday and slightly above average temperatures on Saturday and Sunday. Early next week, longer models will bring another system through the area that will bring more wintry precipitation with the possibility of snow accumulations.

More active weather is forecast for next week, with highs mostly in the 40s.
