(Neb.)-Storm System Tracking Farther South Than Anticipated
(Chadron)-A winter storm is making its way into our listening area, but reports from Wednesday morning indicate it might take more of a southerly track than first anticipated. According to a report from the Associated Press, the storm system is pushing eastward, and should be entering the region late Wednesday evening.
The forecast shows moderate snow accumulations in the Southern Panhandle, with a Winter Weather Advisory for snow and blowing snow southeast of a line from Cheyenne to Chadron, which begins Wednesday afternoon continuing through early afternoon on Thursday. It is estimated 3-6 inches of snow could be expected in these areas. In other areas outside of the advisory, 1-2 inches of snow is expected.
Winds are not expected to be much of a problem, although some blowing snow is possible over the Southern Panhandle. The snowfall will taper off Thursday night, with very light snow lingering. The biggest damper with this storm system will be cold temperatures that follow, with highs on Friday expected in the 20s and 30s, with lows in the teens down to single digits.
