Winter Storm: Feb 27-28

Another round of winter weather is likely to effect at least the western half of the state tomorrow evening and overnight. Eastern Iowa will likely be spared, with only flurries and cloudy skies as they head into the weekend. As for the western half, a shortwave in the mid-levels will spark off some additional snow-showers tomorrow afternoon over the Dakotas. These snow-showers will move southeast with time tomorrow, following an axis close to the Missouri River. With cold temperatures in place, this will be an all snow event throughout the northern plains. Snowfall totals should range from 2-4 inches through the eastern half of Nebraska, and much of the western half of Iowa. A few areas may be able to sneak by with a little less, and others a little more (up to 5 inches).

Beyond this storm system, we look to stay dry until late next week...
