OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - We’re starting mild and staying above 32 the majority of the day. Even though we’ll be rather warm, the wind will be brisk and gusting 30-40 mph at times especially this morning. That will keep the wind chills in the 20s most of the day.

Snow chances are still on track tonight after 10pm with the majority of it expected to go north of the metro into Saturday morning.

A few bursts of snow are possible in the metro through the overnight especially before 7am. Then the focus shifts to areas primarily north of the metro the rest of the morning. A few more snow showers may swing back south later towards noon in the early afternoon but again they won’t amount to much. Overall less than 1″ of snow is likely in the metro with much more north of Omaha.

Much more is likely north with 4-8″ expected in the Sioux City area and Winter Storm Warnings in place. Isolated 10″ amounts would not surprise me there either.


Temperatures on Saturday will start in the upper 20s early in the morning but will fall during the day. North winds will gust to near 30 mph all day and keep wind chills colder too.
