SUN/MON: A few clouds and perhaps a stray shower Sunday. Lows north of the lake around 60 and south of the lake around 65. As of right now, the best chance of snow will be over the northern and northwestern areas.
Temperatures will soar into the 70s across the Metro Area today and tomorrow. We will build in some low clouds overnight as moisture continues to stream northward from the Gulf.
Expect rain showers or a rain snow mix throughout the day with highs in the 30s to low 40s. Areas near the metro, far Southeastern Nebraska and Southwest Iowa have the greatest likelihood of seeing these storms develop and move through. It may be a bit windy for a barbecue, but I think many of us will still spend the evening out on the deck.
Friday night: A chance of rain and thunderstorms.
Likely the highest amounts for this wet and heavy snow at lower elevations will be over Judith Basin and Fergus counties.
Thursday morning's rush house was sloppy and slow but the rain is expected to stop by 9 a.m. As always stay with WGNO on air and online for the latest. This afternoon we will have highs around 80 degrees and plenty of sunshine.
Monday: Sunny with a high near 70. This puts us in a flawless warm sector with that southwesterly wind flow.
A strong cold front will move through central Louisiana Friday night into Saturday morning.
Areas from Harlowton to Roundup extending all the way to the North Dakota line are now under Winter Storm Warnings. High temperatures will likely be back in the 50s and a few spots might even be in the 40s. However, rain and storms will move through during the afternoon and early-evening hours. Much colder air will be building in with that northwest breeze and will definitely arrive by Monday night into Tuesday.
The breezy south wind won't back down throughout the night tonight, as sustained winds will range from 15 to 25 miles per hour.
Thursday... Rain and snow with a high near 41.
Also important to note: there are avenues this system can take that would result in a substantially lower risk. we simply won't know until we get closer to the weekend.
