OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - Monday started off like the many days before – with patches of dense freezing fog. Thankfully, the fog cleared out by mid-morning, with abundant sunshine taking over for the rest of the day. Highs warmed into the upper-30s and lower-40s by the afternoon hours, allowing for some significant melting!

Skies will stay clear Monday evening, with a few more clouds moving in overnight. Temperatures will drop into the upper-teens and lower-20s with the chance for more patchy fog. This fog shouldn’t be nearly as widespread or thick as previous nights.

More clouds will move in Tuesday, but southerly winds should warm us back into the upper-30s near the 40° mark. After another day of melting, our next chance for snow showers moves in Wednesday!

Wednesday is a First Alert Day. An area of low pressure will rotate through the region throughout the day, with light snow showers slowly accumulating. At this time, 1 to 3 inches of snow are possible from this system. Impacts to both the morning and evening commutes are likely.

Behind Wednesday’s system, the forecast looks primarily quiet and cold. Clouds and fog will be tough to shake through the weekend, with highs struggling to hit the freezing mark. Our average high for this time of year is 33°, so we’re pretty much right where we should be.
