Snow Sunday Night

By  | 

Storms will continue to push east of the Ch. 13 viewing area late this afternoon/early evening dumping much needed rain (although a little too much at once) behind. A break from the precipitation is expected this evening before areas north of I-70 may start to see snow from the southern extent of the snow in Nebraska. The other piece of energy that will produce snow tonight will be coming off the Rockies that will provide snow for areas farther south. As far as accumulations go it depends how intense the snow bands are but most spots that do get accumulation, it could add up to 1/2". It isn't completely ruled out for a few isolated spots get up to 1". The snow will mainly accumulate on grassy areas due to the warm pavement from warm temperatures the past several days but roads could still be slick for Monday morning so use caution.
Temperatures will continue to drop with lows in the low-mid 30s Sunday night with highs on Monday only reaching the low-mid 40s with wind chills in the 20s and 30s. It gets even colder Monday night with lows in the 20s but the winds will be light so wind chills won't be too much colder than the actual air temperature. Due to the cold temperatures in the what's considered the growing season a freeze warning has been issued for both Sunday night and Monday night.
