OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Rain showers transitioned to snow showers Saturday night into Sunday morning, especially for areas north of the Omaha Metro. In Omaha, we saw a rain/sleet mix, before precipitation transitioned into all snow. Any notable accumulations were primarily northwest of Omaha, with most of the snow in the metro melting as it reached the ground – outside of a trace on grassy surfaces.

Mostly cloudy skies dominated the rest of Sunday, with just a few hours of sunshine relief. Temperatures were the coldest in 6 months (!) with highs in the 40s.

Mostly cloudy skies stick with us overnight, as temperatures drop into the low to mid-30s. A Freeze Warning is in effect for Polk, York, Butler, Seward, Saline, Lancaster, and Gage Counties tonight through mid-morning Monday.

Another chance for wintry weather arrives overnight and into early Monday. The best chance for light snow overnight looks to be south of Omaha, with the best chance Monday morning north of Omaha.  Dry air should undercut totals.
